Gunny, Planning your outlet location requires following a couple simple rules. You need to have one every 12 feet of runnning wall space and one for every 2 ft of usable wall space. You usually find those in between closet doors etc, it does not count the space behind doors. You also consider usable wall space 1ft high as in under windows etc. After that, you can put them anywhere you want them to figure in to the rules. They are meant to be convenience items and placed as such. Hope that helps.

Without knowing your location, it is not possible to provide an answer. There will be lots of outlets near you, especially in larger shopping centres.

In a room, the maximum distance between duplex outlets is usually 12 feet. Too much distance between outlets can make it difficult to plug in all of the necessary electrical devices in a room.

It would because the outlets are connected by a series circuit.

6' from any wall or door and 12' between every outlet. If room is 10' x 10' you would need 4 outlets

Is the GFCI wired correctly. Voltage in goes to LINE. Voltage out goes to LOAD. Ground wires connect together and connected to ground on GFCI. All screws tight. If all this is correct and you have no loose wires on any of the outlets and no wires are shorted out in any of the outlets then more than likely you have a defective GFCI. Replace it with another one. I get bad ones all the time.

That is the correct spelling of "waiting room."

The correct term to use is " there was blood evidence found in the room" if more than one source of evidence i found then the correct term is " there was blood and other evidence found in the room."

you have to figure it out yourself

It all depends on the location and circuit ampacity. Kitchens usually only have 2 or 3. Garages can have anywhere from 1 to 14. Dining room circuits can only have outlets on them that serve the dining room. Clothes washing machines, air conditioners, and other appliances get their own circuits. Throughout the house, such as bedrooms, hallways, living rooms, ets, generally don't go over 14.

Someone put room 430, but I had to join to delete and correct their error. The correct room number is 434.

To find the number of marbles that fill the room, you need to figure the room's dimensions and the size of the marbles to be used. You will then figure the area.

Yes, because the room belongs to the bride, so it is the Bride's Room.

You probably blew the breaker for the lights. While usually the lights and outlets in a room are on the same breaker, it isn't always done that way. And you may have blown the light bulbs in the lights.

Length times width. 10x12 room is 120 sq. ft.

"He entered the room" is the way the sentence should read

The correct spelling is "dining room" (area where meals are eaten).

The correct way to figure square feet is to multiply length by width, so 20 X 22 = 440 sq ft.
