10-135.

Two employees of Frontier Fence Company can install $100$ feet of fence in three days. At the same rate, how many employees are needed to install $150$ feet of fence in one day?

Since the employees work at the same rate, we can use the given work rate for two employees to find how many employees would be needed to install $150$ feet of fence in one day.

Write a proportional equation for this situation.

$\frac{100}{3} x = 2 \cdot 150$

$9$ people
