You are given 2 eggs. * You have access to a 100-storey building. * Eggs can be very hard or very fragile means it may break if dropped from the first floor or may not even break if dropped from 100 th floor.Both eggs are identical. * You need to figure out the highest floor of a 100-storey building an egg can be dropped without breaking. * Now the question is how many drops you need to make. You are allowed to break 2 eggs in the process floor(n/2) + 2 (n-1+floor(99/n)) is minimal for n=10. You drop the egg from the 10th floor, if it breaks, than you go one-by-one from the first floor -> 10 trials. If it does not break, you drop it from the 20th floor. If it breaks, you go from 11 to 19 -> total 11 trials. Worst case: you drop it from 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 (break), 81,82,83,84,85,86,87,88,89 -> 18 trials. (If it does not break on 90, you can go for 95, and have tha answer in 14 drops worst case). So tha answer is 18. floor(n/2) + 1 Show more responses |
