All members of our painting team paint at the same rate.  If 20 members can paint a 2000 square foot wall in 40 minutes, then how long would it take the 20 members to paint a 6000 square foot wall, in minutes?

Same team, same speed, same paint, but three times as much wall.  

 

Therefore, it'd take three times as much time:   3 * 40 min  =  120 min
