If two different stars were to form at the same time in different locations, with one star three times as massive as the other, how would their lifetimes compare?

    Both stars would have the same lifetime.
     The more massive star would last three times as long as the less massive one.
     The less massive star would last nine times as long as the more massive one.
     The less massive star would last three times as long as the more massive one.
     The more massive star would last nine times as long as the less massive one.
