# How do you solve the two rope puzzle?

Answer To Two Rope Puzzle First arrange the two ropes A and B so you are holding all four of the rope ends. At the start, light both ends of rope A and one end rope B. Exactly when rope A burns up, light the other end of rope B. The time from the start to when rope B burns up is exactly 45 minutes.

Answer To Two Rope Puzzle First arrange the two ropes A and B so you are holding all four of the rope ends. At the start, light both ends of rope A and one end rope B. Exactly when rope A burns up, light the other end of rope B. The time from the start to when rope B burns up is exactly 45 minutes.

**What is the rope riddle?**

You have two ropes coated in an oil to help them burn. Each rope will take exactly 1 hour to burn all the way through. However, the ropes do not burn at constant rates—there are spots where they burn a little faster and spots where they burn a little slower, but it always takes 1 hour to finish the job.

**How would you get 30 minutes if you know that a rope takes 1 hour to burn and there are two ropes but they burn non linearly?**

So here’s what you do: Light one of the ropes on fire on both ends and light the second rope on one end at the same time. When the first rope burns out, 30 minutes have elapsed.

### How do you calculate 45 minutes?

Puzzle 1 | (How to Measure 45 minutes using two identical wires?)

- 0 minutes – Light stick 1 on both sides and stick 2 on one side.
- 30 minutes – Stick 1 will be burnt out. Light the other end of stick 2.
- 45 minutes – Stick 2 will be burnt out. Thus 45 minutes is completely measured.

**How would you measure 45 mins using 2 candles that take 30 mins to burn each?**

45 minutes: Candle 2 + Candle 1 time taken for both the candles to be burned is equivalent to 45 minutes i.e., (30 + 15) minutes.

**How do we measure forty five minutes using two identical ropes each of which takes an hour to burn?**

It will take exactly half the original time, i.e. 30 minutes to burn completely.

- 0 minutes – Light stick 1 on both sides and stick 2 on one side.
- 30 minutes – Stick 1 will be burnt out. Light the other end of stick 2.
- 45 minutes – Stick 2 will be burnt out. Thus 45 minutes is completely measured.

#### How long is 60minutes?

1 hour

There are 60 minutes in 1 hour. To convert from minutes to hours, divide the number of minutes by 60.

**How many hours is 45 60?**

0.75 hours

To convert time to just hours: 45 minutes is 45 minutes * (1 hour / 60 minutes) = 45/60 hours = 0.75 hours. 45 seconds is 45 seconds * (1 hour / 3600 seconds) = 45/3600 hours = 0.0125 hours.

**How long does it take to burn two ropes?**

If rope A burns in 60 minutes with one flame, then it would burn in 30 = 60/2 with two flames. (*more precise proof below) After 30 minutes, some amount of rope B is left. By similar logic, it will take 15 minutes to burn what remains of rope B with two flames. Therefore, the total time to burn both ropes is 30 + 15 = 45 minutes.

## How do you tie a fire rope together?

First arrange the two ropes A and B so you are holding all four of the rope ends. At the start, light both ends of rope A and one end rope B. Exactly when rope A burns up, light the other end of rope B.

**How many flames does it take to extinguish a rope fire?**

Giving the conditions of the rope, if the single flame reaches the end in less then 20 minutes the solution fails. The middle flame should be closer to the burning end to reduce the chance of this. If you get stuck, someone on YouTube suggested that you could create 4 flames and extinguish one of them.

**How long does it take to climb a rope?**

First rope + Second 30 mins + Second rope 15 mins = 45 mins. Nope as already said in the question the ropes aren’t homogenous through out niether do they have the same density across their lengths so this strategy won’t work.
