All members of our painting team paint at the same rate. If 20 members can paint a 6000 square foot wall in 24 minutes, then how long would it take the 20 members to paint a 9000 square foot wall, in minutes?

18/8
24/20 = 6/5
6/5 * 24 = $\boxed{28.8}$ minutes

x is time it takes for 20 members to paint a 9000 square foot wall

x/9000=24/6000

x=24/6*9

x=36 minutes
