135,000 divided by 6,000 =x x=22.5 so 23 fire extinguishers are needed in a building with 135,000 square feet

Answer:23 fire extinguisher.

Step-by-step explanation:Let x be the number of fire extinguishers.

We have been given that one fire extinguisher be available for every 6,000 square feet in a building. So the total area covered by x extinguisher will be 6,000x.

Since the building has an area of 135,000 square feet. This means that that total area covered by x extinguisher is 135,000 square feet. We can represent this information in an equation as:

Therefore, the equation represents the number of fire extinguishers needed for a building that has 135,000 square feet.Now we will solve for by dividing both sides of our equation by 6000.

Since we can not have 0.5 of a fire extinguisher, so we will round up our answer as:

Therefore, 23 fire extinguisher are needed for the building.
