A blue candle is twice as long as a red one. The blue takes 6 hours to burn out and red takes 15 hours. After 5 hours, what fractional part of each is left?

Thanks for your help!

  • math -

    6/6 - 5/6 = 1/6

    15/15 - 5/15 = 10/15 = 2/3

    Why does the longer candle take longer to burn??

  • math -

    what is 1-5/6?

    what is 1-5/15?
