    One fire extinguisher be available for every 6000 square feet

    Let x the number of fire extinguishers needed for building that has 135,000 square feet.

    So, the equation that represents this problem is

    6000 x = 135,000

    Solve for x

    ∴ x = 135,000 / 6000

    = 22.5

    Rounding to the nearest greater integer

    ∴ x = 23

    ∴ The number of fire extinguishers needed for building = 23
