### how many golf balls fit in an airplane

The people who require more info are missing the point. In real life decisions, you are often working on too little data to make an "easy" decision. There is no right answer to this question. What they are looking for is your ability to think the problem though, make estimates and arrive at an answer. My advice with a problem like this is to take a sheet of paper and think out loud as you work through it. Let the interviewer in on your thought process. The WORST thing you could do is ask "what sort of golf ball?"! Less

That's a trick question. Everyone knows that golf balls are now banned by TSA. This question is devised to see if you can go on a business trip without ending up being branded a terrorist. Less

### You have 3000 bananas at point A, which is 1000 feet removed from point B. You must move as many bananas to point B, but you can only carry 1000 bananas at any time, and traveling 1 feet requires you to eat 1 banana. You can drop off bananas at any point between A and B, and pick them up later.

It's not 500. Not sure if correct but I calc 666.

Hey G It goes like this 1000-2x+1000-2x+1000-x=2000 ( equate it to 2000 because after this u will wont need to go back third time as the maximum u can carry will be over in two time) x=200 (first stop point @ 200 feet) 1000-2y+1000-y=1000 ( equate it to 1000 because after this u will wont need to go back second time as the maximum u can carry will be over once y=333 (second stop point @ 533 feet) so you can move the remaining 1000 distance in (1000-533)=533 to Point B. So 533 bananas left Less

Sorry for the fat fingers in my answers! I ate too many bananas and was feeling ill, lol Less

### Behavioral: what is the similarity between a milk carton and a plane seat

Both have expiration date. If they are not sold/used by the expiration date/flight time, they are useless Less

Both are designed for efficient transportation

They are both designed to be lightweight, which translates into saving on transportation costs and energy. Less

### i have a gun in each hand, one with 3 bullets and other with 2. i fire them together at you, what is the probability that you die?

1 - P(gun1 failed) * P(gun2 failed) = 1 - (3/6)*(4/6) = 2/3

probability of 1st gun firing a round is P(a)=3/6. and probability of 2nd gun firing P(b)= 2/6. probability of 1st gun FAILURE P(a')=3/6 probability of 2 nd gun FAILURE P(b')=4/6 3 conditions are possible p(a)*P(b')+P(a')*P(b)+P(a)*P(b)=2/3 Less

I guess it is a six revolver. 1-3/6*4/6=2/3

### what would you do if you just inherit a pizzaria from your uncle

If I just inherited a pizzaria from my uncle then I wouldn't be interviewing for another job right now but keeping the business alive till I could find someone to take over for me since that isn't what I want to do for a living Less

Sell it to someone who loves pizza !

Well, if it's in New York City, it has the potential to take in up to \$70,000 (maybe more) a week in revenue. I've seen pizza shops that have non-stop customers from the time they open, until they close, usually buying a plain slice for \$2.00 - \$2.50, and with 1 topping, \$3.00 - \$3.50. My associate and I were guessing that, of course, in the right location, they could sell up to 4,000 slices in a day. With an average price of \$2.50, that's \$10,000 a day. Less

### You have a cube which is built from smaller cubes, dimensions are 10x10x10cubes. The cube fell into a bucket with red paint. How many cubes left uncoloured.

400 cubes is incorrect? As the cube will have adjacent corners therefore a smaller cube may already be painted on a different face. Less

The "cube" in the second sentence, is in reference to the "cube in the 1st.

Not sure how so many people are getting tripped up by this, all the outer cubes will be coloured so take one layer off each side to get an inner cube made of 8x8x8 = 512 cubes. Less
