Two Strings, Matches and No Watch – Determine 45 Minutes

Jan 27

String joke

Hint

There are Two ends to every string

Answer

Light both ends of the first string at the same time you light one end of the second string. When the first string is burned up, that will be the end of 30 minutes. This also means that 30 minutes have burned off the 2nd string. Now light the other end of the 2nd string. When the 2nd string is burned up 45 minutes has passed.
