Your next puzzle.
Busy day today so open for solutions now. Next puzzle coming shortly.
A young Buddhist is told by his master to meditate for exactly 45 minutes. However, all he is given to keep time is two incense sticks and some matches. Each of the incense sticks, upon being lit, will burn completely in exactly one hour, but they are cheaply made and don't burn uniformly.
How can the student arrange to meditate for exactly 45 minutes?
