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?

2000/40=6000/x

 

240000=2000x

 

120=x

 

120 minutes!

\(x=120\)                                            \(240000=2000x \)                   \(\dfrac{2000}{60}=\dfrac{6000}{x}\)
