 You have eight golf balls with one slightly heavier than the rest and one leveling scale. What is the least number of times you can use the scale to figure out the heavier ball.2 AnswersTwo times.2 times: Weigh 3 vs. 3. If they weigh the same, it must be one of the two remaining golf balls, and you weigh once more to find out. If the 3v3 don't weigh the same, take the heavier three, and weigh two of them. If they're the same weight, it's the one ball you didn't weigh. If one is heavier, it's that ball. Voila.

 What is probability 4 people were all born in four different seasons?2 Answers1/4 * *3/4 *2/4 * 1/4 basically first person has 1 in 4 chance of being a season not chosen yet 2nd person has a 3/4 chance not being in season chosen yet 2 seasons taken so 3rd person has 2/4 chance being in season not chosen yet 3 seasons taken so last person has 1/4 chance of being in season not chosen yetThis is wrong. You're only accounting for one specific combination of seasons for the 4 people and not the fact that the first person could be born in one of 4 seasons. So you have to multiply your answer by 4. The correct answer is 0.09375, not 0.023438 as you specified.

 How can you determine if a firm's stock price dropped due to the firm announcing they discovered flawed financials through an audit, or if it was due to other circumstances not necessarily in the firm's control?2 AnswersLook at the stock price movement of comparable companies.Run a time series regression of price movements on an indicator for the audit, including stock prices of competitors, an industry average, and a market average as controls in order to account for systemic influences on the stock. Test the null hypothesis of the coefficient on the indicator being greater than or equal to zero. If we reject the null (at the 5% significance level), then we have evidence suggestive of a negative association between the audit and the stock price fall.
