 23rd September 2012, 09:59 AM #41 M Gregg   Account disabled at member's request   Join Date: Jun 2010 Location: UK Here is an easy one.. You have a lighter and two fuses that take exactly one hour to burn, but they don't burn at a steady rate. For example, one fuse could take 59 minutes to burn the first inch and then burn the rest of the fuse in the last minute. How would you use these two fuses to measure 45 minutes? Regards M. Gregg

Hi,

Its only easy if you know the answer.

Light one fuse at both ends the other at one end.
When the first burns out light the other end of the other.

45 minutes.

Ask him, "If I give you these nice new fuses, will you alert me after 45 minutes has passed?" __________________ "You tell me whar a man gits his corn pone, en I'll tell you what his 'pinions is."
