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?

This question has been answered a ton of times, but I'll just put the solution one more time. It would take them 120 minutes. 6000 square feet is 3 times 2000, so it should take 3 times the amount of time if they paint at the same rate. This means it will take 40 x 3 = 120 minutes.
