Burning candle | 7 Aug 2009
You have 2 candles which last for 1 hour each. How can you measure 90 mins without the help of any clock or any scale.

This was the question asked in one of Tech companies interview.

Re: Burning candle
First light up the two ends of the 1st candle. When it will burn out light up one end of the second candle. (30+60=90)
