Bitcoin Mining and Security

At least 100 words.

1. A bitcoin fork occurs because of incompatible rule changes, splitting the Bitcoin network into Network A and Network B. Network A has 90% of the hashing power and Network B has 10% of the hashing power. Before the split, new blocks were added every ten minutes on average. Immediately after the split, how long will it take for Network A and Network B to each add a new block? If Networks A and B are not adding blocks every ten minutes after the split, will they ever add blocks every ten minutes?
