How many recessed lights for 10x10 kitchen?

They are going to be 6 inch and 75 w bulbs. Is 4 sufficient light?

4 would be sufficient for that space, depending on where you put them. Equally spaced on ceiling from cabinet to cabinet or cabinet to wall would work.

Although it depends on things like trim style, bulb type and wattage and mounting height. I typically install a 6" with a open baflle trim on a 4' grid in the kitchen. A lot depends on the workspace layout.
