Candles melting

Algebra Level 3

Consider two candles which have the same height. Each candle burns at a consistent rate (but the two candles have different burn rate). The first one melts completely in 5 hours, and the second one melts completely in 3 hours.

If they are lit at the same time, after how many minutes will the first one be thrice as long as the second one?
