How many basketballs would fit in this room?47 Answers
That depends. Inflated or deflated ?
With us staying in the room with the basketballs or with us outside?
Did you study physics with E.A.Dearolph at Woodward Academy?
Before I answer this question I would like to give more informations: 1. The size of the room 2. Is it empty or not? 3. If not the size of the furnitures 4. The basketballs would be inflated or not 5. The size of the basketballs in bothcases
Since the position is for a revenue management position, the interviewer will want to see that you can think through the math in a practical way. Don't guess. Instead, think aloud as you work out the answer. Here's a simple way to get a rough estimate of the number of basketballs that will fit in the room. Estimate the size of the room. Let's say it is about 10' x 10', with an 8' ceiling. Now, estimate the volume required for one basketball. To get a rough answer, don't get fancy with equations and dealing with the shape of the basketball. You may not be sure of the diameter of a basketball, but you have a rough idea. To make the math simple, figure that the ball is about 1' in diameter. The ball is the same width in all directions, so it takes up roughly 1 cubic foot of volume. How many cubic feet in the room? 10 time 10 time 8, or 800. So, there's room for approximately 800 basketballs. If I were interviewing a candidate for this type of position, I'd be very pleased if the candidate could think through that answer. But if this were a position for a role that involved more sophisticated math, such as a data analyst or engineering position, I would expect the candidate to go further and discuss how the estimate could be improved. The next step would be accounting for the exact dimensions of the room and basketballs. And an engineer should be aware of dense packing arrangements that could fit more basketballs into the room.
Are they NBA, WNBA, or youth sized?
PS. I do love the point made in the other answers here - are the balls inflated, is the room empty, etc. All good thinking, good questions, but still your interviewer will want you to actually answer the question.
if the room is empty, exactly its volume multiplied by 9. If you ask why 9, give it some thought, you'll find the answer in the end ;)
Bad information is worse than no information. Answer for question like that requires some effort. What resoureces can i have and how much time to perform some data collection?
With or w/o air?
All of them
The valuable real-estate is in my head, not this room. And I look forward to using that real-estate to increase Delta Air Lines' bottom line ;). But, that's a fun question... this room is 10 ft x 10 ft x 9 ft ceiling height. 900 cubic feet. The average diameter of an NBA Mens basketball is between 9.5" to 9.85". For the sake of calculation, lets say 9.7". Using these figures, we could fit 12.37 (or 12 balls) width wise and length wise in this room, stacking 11.13 (or 11 balls) high. 12x12x11. So, per my calculations, we can fit 1,584 balls in this room.
How many need to fit?
I have totally sure that at least one Ball!
I can produce as many basketballs as the room needs, so I don't need to know how many. You just need to know that it will be done.
What benefit to this organization is it to know how many basketballs will fill it? How many basketballs do you want to fit in this room? I see this as more of a challenge to understand the logic of this being a relative task to the position.
Filled with air or deflated? Details matter.
i'D SAY THAT'S A REALLY STUPID QUESTION!
cannot answer question, if the room was filled with balls, you could not open door to count
A regulation size basketball has a volume of 455.9 cubic inches. I would then get the width, length and height of the room. Put these dimension in a rectangle cube and calculate the volume. Divide the room volume by the basketball volume then you get the number of basketballs need to fill the room.
Enough to break the ice lol
Depends on the size of the basketball. Is it marble sized? or one really BIG basketball?
Let's find out!
A basketball takes up roughly one square foot of space. So, estimate the length, width and height of the room, multiply to get the square footage of the room, and that's (approx) how many basketballs would fit in the room!
Best answer has been to estimate and multiply - 10'x10'x8' and a 1' ball gives 800.. You have to be able to deal with uncertainty and unknowns. Sometimes an educated, fast guess is better than a drawn out answer. Of course you can always improve the answer but knowing that its around 800 is about as good as knowing that its 1200.
Why would I fit basketballs in any room?
Whats the budget? do we need to fill the room?
(Volume of the room / Volume of basketball) */ Packing Factor (depending on form of packing factor ratio)
It depends upon the ratio of leprechauns to unicorns.
I can fit a lot of basketballs in here but the question is how fast do you want it done?
A basketball is about 25 cm in diameter. That means it has a nominal volume of 4/3*pi*(0.125) m^3, which is about 0.004 m^3. The packing efficiency of sphere is about 0.72, meaning that each ball takes up about 0.005 m^3. I just looked around my apartment and I think its about 4m x 7m x 3m. or 96 m^3. Divide the two numbers and you get about 4,500 basketballs in my apartment.
a lot, stop wasting my time
As many as my present bank balance would allow me to buy
One less than what would fit into the room
If you filled the room with basketballs, what further use would the room be?
As many as we can make room for...considering the items currently in the room and the possibility of rearranging those items for maximum displacement...assuming a 10 inch ball...do the balls have to be inflated? Are the balls packaged in some way that we need to take into consideration? Are there items in this room that we can room without negative impact?
Are they inflated or deflated - So as many necessary to fill up the room.
And... why would you be wondering about this? ... March Madness???? 8-)
If knowing the correct answer to this question is needed for this job, then I am not your candidate as I draw pictures for a living.
All of them!
As many as it takes!
I don't even know how wide or empty the room is heh
That depends, are they inflated or deflated?
roof or no roof?

What makes someone have self confidence?6 Answers
It is a standard that is different for everyone. It's something that comes from inside and is unique to each individual.
Does PSA have travel benefits on American Airlines? Did they tell you if you have to memorize the in-flight announcements or do you have a book?
Did they drug test yet
Did you get the job?
What it makes me be confident is basically to know who i am, trusting my vaues, integrity as a good and valuable person.
Believing in themselves.
Tell me about yourself, do you have a family?6 Answers
I refocused to talk more about myself, career path, goals and objectives.
Are they allowed to ask that?
Legally, no., which Is why I redirected my answer. They were very clever in their later questions to get me to disclose my family situation. It made me quite uncomfortable.
That is terrible of them.
Not yet, I just looking for good work and make myself stable before let’s anyone come t my life.
That question violates federal law. You should have reported especially after you did not receive an offer, I would not be surprised that since you circumvented the question the interviewer did not take you seriously

The most unexpected question was how they knew they could trust me to learn the system after my training elsewhere.5 Answers
Although I told them that I always devoted myself to everything, they demanded proof. I pointed to my references and told them that, if they wanted proof, it could be found there.
What an illogical question. How are you supposed to know their homebrew system without any information. This is not surprising. From what I hear about the Clubessential IT Department, they are complacent and out of ideas. They constantly make fun of the CIO, the owner's son, and the owner constantly behind their backs at Starbucks. Their attitude and general disrespect to people is disappointing.
This is not a question I have used but the question is logical and leads to a simple response to speak about a time when you were confronted by a difficult or overwhelming learning opportunity. I certainly would not recommend passing that opportunity to stand out on to your interviewer and/or references. I'd be remiss if I didn't address the disparaging remarks about our development team. Not that it is necessary for management because both management and our development team members have an excellent relationship and utmost respect for each other and all parties know this to be untrue. Our developers are very hard working and have produced a half dozen new products and hundreds of smaller enhancements this year alone. These and others are selling very well in our markets allowing us to hire on many more new employees this year than ever before. We like our developers to be free to innovate on their schedule so we work with them on flexible hours and our most of our developers enjoy coffee so many days we hold our daily sprint meetings to discuss current projects at a coffee shop. I hope this addresses all of the concerns but if not my door is always open to discuss any concerns or ideas. Regards, John
Developers at CE are required to work 24/7 & for anyone to say that they're "flexible" is a flat out lie. Yes, they typically leave for coffee in the morning & are gone for about an hour. They also take frequent breaks throughout the day but when you have such a poor work/life balance, I see nothing wrong with that. Just know that when your phone rings at 4am, you better be ready... and it happens more often than any of them will ever admit. The horrible bags under their eyes will say more than anything I write here. The CE developers are also not very welcoming when someone needs clarification on something and god forbid you question what they're doing. They could care less about the "minions" around them so the defensive response above is not surprising. The "founding" developers have a lot of respect for each other and are very protective of their department but unfortunately they haven't been able to successfully bring in someone new from the outside to join the team... If you aren't being promoted to the department from within the company, assume that you won't be a good fit for them. They're more concerned with finding the next big thing that they can brag about to clients than they are with fixing the products that they already have.... it looks better for the company if they have cool new (glitchy) toys to purchase but how about that calendar or the directory or the articles or the editor or site statistics or anything else that their own clients have desperately begged to be reworked for the past 10 years? No, instead members can now submit food orders through their phones. Great work. The reviews on this company speak for themselves.
The Clubessential employee's response to the question is disingenuous. If you were truely looking for an overwhelming learning story from a candidate, you simply ask the candidate, "Tell me a time when you felt overwhelmed learning a role" and let them describe their tale. The question asked and the follow up "demanding proof" are accusatory and that line of questioning turns an otherwise pleasant job meeting into a Combat Interview. My recommendation, get training on how to interview, and learn to tell the truth more.
A study has a quota of 200. If you can expect 80% of you sample to recovery in 6 days, how many pieces of sample will need to be added to the study in order to reach quota in 6 days.4 Answers
I think the correct answer would be "50" because they ask how many pieces will need to be added.
80% of 200 is 160 so would it be 40 that is needed?
200/80% = 200/0.80 = 250 Hence, sample need to be added = 250- 200 = 50
Name a time when you made a decision that ended up being a mistake. Did you take responsibility and what was the outcome?4 Answers
Talked about a time I submitted a double payment for a customer (in regards to student loans) because I looked at only the invoice and did not look to see if a payment had been submitted after the invoice had been generated. We were able to issue her a wire transfer instead of making her wait until the next scheduled refund date.
Hi! I was at the Cincinnati interview as well. Have you heard anything yet?
Hey! I have heard back from them. Have you heard anything yet?
While substitute teaching a technology lab I did not release students at dismissal as the class teacher did not return to pick up the class. The students said that they did not need to wait for her to return that they knew the way . I called the office to verify and was told they could be released. I apologized and expressed my concern for releasing students without adult supervision and the office assured me it was permitted. I quickly release them and thanked everyone for their patience and understanding
