Assuming either can be oriented into a position where they lay opposite.

(IE: (x = flame, o = body, .. = filler)

..000000000X

X000000000

Then light both candles at the same time. When they reach midway, (that means the top of the candle are at the same position) Move them back to the position setup in the first place. When they reach halfway again it will 45 minutes.

Light candle 1 normally and light candle 2 at both ends.

In 30 minutes, candle 2 will be completely burned.

At that time light the other end of candle 1.

Fifteen minutes later candle 1 will be burned completely.

That's 45 minutes.

The solution that doesn't light at both ends requires uniform burning speed [or that the two candles are identical] I think.

But that's a reasonable assumption. B))
