All of the members of our spray-painting team paint at the same speed. If 12 team members can paint a 2400 square foot wall in 45 minutes, then how many minutes would it take for 9 team members to paint a 3600 square foot wall?

2400 sq ft / 45 minutes/12 members  =   4.44 sq ft / min/member   (each member can  paint 4.44 sqft/min)

 

3600 sq ft   /  ( 4.44 sqft/min/mem   *   9 members)  = 90 mins

12t, 2400 ft, 45m

1t, 2400ft, 540m

9ft, 2400ft, 60m

9ft, 1ft, 1/40m

9ft, 3600ft, 1/40*3600=360/4=\(\boxed{90}\) minutes!
