Achinta was studying for his examinations and the lights went out around 1:00 AM. He lit two uniform candles of equal length but one thicker than the other. The thick candle is supposed to last six hours and the thin one two hours less. When he finally went to sleep, the thick candle was twice as long as the thin one.
For how many minutes did Achinta study by candlelight?
