buying price = $25.10

Discount = 20% of buying price

               = 20% of $25.10

               = $5.02

Now buying price with discount = $25.10 - $5.02

                                                  = $20.08

tax = 8.25% of price with discount

     = 8.25% of $20.08

     = $1.6566

now 

Original price = price with discount - tax price

                      = $20.08 - 1.6566

                     = $18.4234

Hence Original price of sweater = $18.4234
