well the blue candle's fraction left is 1/6 and the red candle's fraction is 1/3.

the blue candle's length is 1/2 of the red candle's existing length.

This is because after 5 hours there is only 1 hour left of the blue candle, and 10 hours left of the red candle giving you 1/6 left of the blue candle, and 1/3 (15/5=3)of the red candle left.

Since the blue candle 1/6 and the red candle 1/3: 1/6 is 1/2 of 1/3 therefor giving you the fraction 1/2 of the red candle is the existence of the blue candle.
