All of the members of our spray-painting team paint at the same speed. If 8 team members can paint a 5000 square foot wall in 30 minutes, then how many minutes would it take the 8 members to paint an 8000 square foot wall?

The Team paints at a rate of  5000 sq ft /  30 min   =  166.67  sqft/min

Since the team does not change size:

8000 sq ft  /  166.67 sqft/min  =   48 min

8 team members, 5000 ft., 30 minutes

8 team members, 8000 ft, ?

8 team members,              166 ft   , 1 minute

8 team members, 8000 ft, \(\boxed{48}\) minutes, approximately
