Digital Agent engineers solve complex puzzles for our customers every day. Can you solve the puzzle we created for you?
You are given 2 strings and a lighter. You know that if you light either end of either string on fire, it will take exactly 1 hour to burn to the other end. Both strings burn at a different, non-constant rate (in other words, different sections of the string will burn at different speeds.) You can measure 60 minutes by lighting one of the strings and letting it burn out. How do you measure 45 minutes?
Congratulations Rob Smith for solving last month’s puzzler!
