A man lights two candles and begins a romantic candlelight dinner with his wife. The candles are of equal length, but one candle is thicker than the other. The thick candle is designed to last for six hours while the thin candle is designed to last for three hours.

At the end of the dinner, the thick candle is twice as long as the thin candle. How long did their dinner last?
Do you have a suggestion for this puzzle (e.g. something that should be mentioned/clarified in the question or solution, bug, typo, etc.)?
