1. 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?

2. Two men are standing on one side of a bridge and two women are approaching them. One of the men says, "Here comes my wife and daughter" to which the second man replies, "Here comes my wife and daughter". If they have not married the same woman and the women aren't pregnant, how is this true?

@dlex, are they lit simultaneously or does one finish then light the other, the sum of both independently amounting to an hour?

1) Measure a quarter of each fuse and burn the remaining three quarters of each fuse.

2) An exceptional case where (father and son)

The father isnt married to the mother
but married to the daughter
then the son is married to the mother




Logicboss cool

1st is defintely wrong. Read his example again... In his example, one fuse could burn an inch after 59 mins, then completely burn out in the last min..

Your 2nd answer might be right though, but dats one sick family..

Thats why you burn 75% of both either they both clock at 45 minutes (unlikely) or one clocks at 45 minutes. Or else, it is impossible. The fuse that takes the longer time to reach a 3/4 is 45 mins long.

I googled the question and the answer is that one has to assume that the ropes burn at a uniform rate and burn one from both sides and the other from one side

Re: Riddles Riddles Riddles!!! by dlex21(m): 7:28am On Dec 18, 2012
bottom line...logicboy got the answer wiv the help of google ofcos undecided....since it takes an hour to burn a fuse...u burn the 1st fuse @ both ends which should take 30mins and then the other fuse @ 1 end for 15mins which would give u a total of 45mins grin grin

and as for the 2nd questn...una funny ooo...ow can son marry mother and father marry daughter shocked shocked nobody has gotten it!!!

now where is tinkybabe??

How would you know the second fuse burns for 15 mins?

The guy didnt ask the question properly because in the online answer, the person has to assume that the ropes or fuses burn at a uniform rate.
