Time with Candles

Algebra Level 2

To keep track of time, an adventurer carries two cylindrical candles of equal heights but different radii. One takes 6 hours and the other takes 9 hours to burn out.

Now, the adventurer lights both candles and goes to sleep. If one candle is twice the height of the other when he wakes up, how much time has he slept?
