Incorrect spelling, explanation: this is a misspelling, because equipment is created by adding suffix -ment to the word equip. There is no reason to add also a t between them, therefore
equiptment is an incorrect spelling. The correct one is equipment.
Correct spelling, explanation: equipment is a noun made by adding suffix -ment to verb equip. Equip comes from Middle French equiper. When we add suffix -ment to equip there is no need to add also extra t between, therefore
equiptment is a mistaken form and equipment is the correct one.
