Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Pumps runs at 3 minutes per hour

Therefore in one day - one days has 24 hours- the pump runs for 3 x  24 = 72 minutes

It pumps 200 gallons every minute

Therefore in 72 minutes

(200 gallons/minutes*72 minutes)=14400 gallons.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
