### You have a birthday cake and have exactly 3 slices to cut it into 8 equal pieces. How do you do it?

Assuming the cake is square: slice 1: cut horizontally to create 2 equal pieces slice 2: cut vertically to create 4 equal pieces slice 3: line up all 4 pieces of cake side by side and cut horizontally to create 8 equal pieces. don't stack, it will ruin the frosting. Less

Cut each slice into 3 slices. Then eat one of them.

Slice it horizontally across the middle creating two equal halves top and bottom. Then simple two slice cross from above like normal. Less

### Sell me your pen. Tell me a time you did something for someone and you didn't expect anything in return. Why American? If you were CEO of American how would you improve American Airlines day 1?

I did it last night, I feel confident about it. It was pretty mucy exactly what I thought it would be, just different format. Hoping for a call about the interview. Less

I can't really give you any help, but I can tell you every test is different. Make sure to relax and read the directions first. If you didn't get everything right, that is okay there not looking for a 100%. Good Luck! Less

### You have 100 quarters, 10 heads, 90 tails up in a dark room where you can't see the quarters. How do you divide them into 2 piles where you have an even amount of heads in each pile?

Take the 90 quarters that are tails and split them into two piles, 45 in each. Then take 5 heads and place into each stack, and you'll have an equal amount of heads in each stack. Less

It is simple you only have 10 heads in front of you because 90 tails are in a darker room which you can't see. So make a pile of 5-5 of heads. Less

randomly split the 100 quarters into two equal piles, 50 quarters per pile. Because of probability, that'll get you fairly close to an even amount of heads in each pile Less

### Why do you want to work for Dollar General?

### You are in a garage sale, you're selling your TV for 100 and your neighbor is selling the exact same TV for 50, what should you do?

In response to your eg with AA flight vs Jet Blue, you need to ask yourself, are you profitable selling a ticket at \$50? If not you can't just drop your price to compete and a loss. The garage sale scenario was strictly 2 tv's in the neighborhood. If one is sold and your tv is the only tv left, there's no competition, also you can still justify your price with other incentives, maybe free delivery. I was given this answer in class from a professor who was once in the airlines. I hope this helps. Less

Drop price to \$50. Its a Nash equilibrium.

don't get in a price war, keep price high there's only 2 tv's for sale. Probably offer free delivery Less
