How many baseball's can you fit on a 747?

4 Answers

This type of question is about demonstrating your thinking process and your comfort level with estimation. Here's one approach: 1. Estimate the width and height of the fuselage (main body of the jet). It's roughly a cylinder, so you could assume that the width and height are approximately the same. (Maybe 20 ft.) 2. Now estimate the length of the fuselage. (Maybe 150 ft.) 3. I can't remember the formula for the volume of a cylinder, but the formula for the volume of a cube is length x width x height. In this case, 20 x 20 x 150 or 60,000 cubic feet. 4. Now estimate the number of baseballs in one cubic foot. (Maybe four high, four wide, and four long, or 4 x 4 x 4, or 64. 5. Now multiply 64 baseballs per cubit foot by the number of total cubic feet on a 747 (60,000) to get approximately 3,840,000 baseballs. Less

Hey Steve I think you are thinking about volume- This type of question intrigues me because there are so many unstated variables such as, is there adhesive of some sort involved? Does "on" mean "all around" or covering the 747? If there is no adhesive, does that mean 'how many baseballs could you put on TOP of the 747' - does this also include the wings? And would it count if there is no adhesive material and one rolls off - as Curio stated, it is not a flat surface. Actually there are a million other hypothetical questions that could pertain to the imaginary baseball on the 747, but the interesting part for me is to read each post and determine what 'controlling statements' each person adds to the question before answering it. It is so easy to simply answer a hypothetical question with predetermined figures based on each persons thinking process or experience, instead of taking only the facts stated in the question and determining a hypothetical answer or two. I am thoroughly enjoying reading these questions, posts, and analyzing thought responses. Sometimes I am even enlightened. ;-) Less

One thing that I don't quite understand. The 747 is somewhat cylindrical, which means that the top of it is rounded off, as in, not flat enough to hold any baseballs without them falling off. So, you attempt to put a baseball on top of a 747 and it will probably just roll off wouldn't it? Then you actually can't put any baseballs on top of a 747. Anyway, I don't know if this is the right answer, or if there even is one, but that's my analysis of the situation. Less

Explain the difference between TCP and UDP

4 Answers

That's really as difficult as it gets?

UDP packet processing is faster compared to TCP packet processing. This is because once TCP packets are delivered to the destination, an acknowledgement is expected at the transmission end. If no acknowledgement is received, re-transmission of packets occurs at the transmission end. This is opposite to UDP operation, in which no acknowledgement is necessary. Less

TCP is a reliable protocol that utilizes windowing and acknowledgement packets to ensure all traffic is transmitted and received UDP is an unreliable protocol that does not utilize windowing and acknowledgements, and is good to use when you can't re-transmit a packet (EG a voice or video packet) Less

Liberty Mutual Insurance

An insurance company only makes a payout when damage is above 1000. Only 50% of the damage above 1000, including the 1000 is paid out. If the payout was 1250, what was the damage?

4 Answers

1250 = 1000 + 50% * (X) 250 = 50%* (X) X = 500 Total Damage = 1000 + X = 1500 Less

1250 = 50%*(damage - 1000) 2500 = damage - 1000 Damage = 3500

hmm... ok I may be wrong but 3500 Total damage doesn’t add up with 1250 payout. The claim is paid at 50 percent of the excess of 1000 and then you add back in the 1000. So 3500 total damage means that 2500 (excess over 1000) at 50 percent = 1250 then you add back 1000 which means total payout would be 2250 on 3500 total damage. 1250 payout means total damage is 1500. 250 (is excess of 1000) is half of 500 or 50 percent .... 250 +1000 = 1250. Etc.... 1700 total payout = 2400 total damage. 700 is the excess of 1000 and 50 percent of 1400 ... 1400 and 1000 added equals 2400. Less
