    Thanks so much for this post – my friends really enjoyed this puzzle also.

    Found a great answer here as well:

    2 Ropes 45 Minutes

  2. Akshay Mone:

    I am sorry but i think This is wrong answer. when it is said that it does not burn at uniform speed how can you expect a half rope to be burn in 30 minutes only. It can be case that half rope is burnt in 1 min and other half takes 59 minutes to burn.

  3. Mohit:

    Agree with Akshay. Can anyone please explain the answer a bit more who feels that this is the correct solution. Thanks.

  4. Nick:

    I agree with Akshay and Mohit. Please explain why rope #2 would burn in 30 minutes. It’s not enough to note that 60/2 = 30!
