200 minutes

#### Explanation:

First, you do 120 divided by 15 because you think the 15 lines per 25 minutes as a rate. Since 120 divided by 15 is 8, you multiply 25 by 8 to get 200.

The ratios are 15 lines:25 minutes as 120 lines: ? minutes. You can solve this ratio and also get 200 minutes by multiplying by 8 on both sides of the first ratio.
