    Answer:

    x  =  131,25  m

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Manufacture the collar of an airbag helmet   takes 1,5 m of fabric

    Manufacturer is going to make 250 collars

    Company only has 65 %  of the needed fabric

    Total quantity of fabric needed is:

    250 * 1,5  = 375 m

    If they have 65 % that means that they need 35 % of the total quantity

    then, by rule of three

    375  ⇒     100

    x ??  ⇒       35

    x = ( 375 * 35)/100

    x  =  131,25  m
