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?
If 20 people can pint 2000 square feet in 40 minutes we can find
how long it would take by just multiplying by 3, b/c 6000/2000=3
This results in 120 minutes, or 2 hours to paint a 6000 square foot yard.
