Burning Sticks and Time
started by kb0000 on 2014-06-01 11:56:17 | in Talks under
There are two sticks and a matchbox. Each stick takes exactly an hour to burn from one end to the other. The sticks are not identical and do not burn at a constant rate. As a result, two equal lengths of the stick would not necessarily burn in the same amount of time. How would you measure exactly 45 minutes by burning these sticks?
