How many man hours would it take to clean every single window in London?

21 Answers

Thank you for the time, this job's not for me...

Based on London's population and an average time per window you could give a rough estimate. Each person has a home and a workplace (schools or other public institutions are also here). So I have 2 windows for me at home and 2 at home, maybe more.. Then I take all cars of London probably the same or more as the population have about 6 windows each So the formula would be: time_per_window * ( population * ( 2 at home + 2 at work + 6 per car)) Less

If that includes Windows Vista it doesn't seem worthwhile.

A round cover won't fall into a round hole.

Harder to fall in the hole itself. Vs a square or rectangle cover

Hard to put a round cover on the wrong way. Only 1 way to put it on, even if upside down Less

a family have 2 kids. if you have seen 1 girl , what is the proberbl the other kids is a boy

10 Answers

chainsaw is right - the question is subtle. Outcome space is (b1,b2), (b1,g2), (g1,b2) and (g1,g2). Now - if you HAVE SEEN the girl (specific girl let's say girl 1) that removes outcomes (b1,b2)&(b1,g2) leaving us with p=1/2 of choice between outcomes (g1,b2) and (g1,g2). If you KNOW (was told) that one is a girl, but do not know which one, than only (b1,b2) is removed from outcome space and the chance is 2/3. Less

answer is 1/2 - the question is very subtle...

isnt it 1/2? BG (boy and girl) and GB (girl and boy) are the same. order is not important. or am i missing something? Less

1 million card applications. $1 per application cost to do employment verification. 96% pass verification and get a card. 4% fail and do not get cards. Given average profits on cardholders in good standing, and average losses on accounts that default, find the % of denied cardholders that would have to default in order to justify the $1 per application verification cost .

8 Answers

Anymore info given? I think you'd either need to know the percentage of cardholders in good standing, or the percentage of cardholders in bad standing. Less

This appears to be a trick question that makes you think they want to know the break-even point. However: how can someone default on a credit card that they were "denied" and never issued? Less

I had the same case and you can ask for more info like percent in good standing etc. Less

Are you willing to work 80 hours a week?

6 Answers

I just got hired there as a bra, easily willing to work the 80 hours. Never saw a company that treats you with so much respect and trust right out of the gate. Also spend a lot of money per employee in technology which most people don't know and don't care about. I know and appreciate it as even if a company has the money, most won't spend it. Deloitte realizes their people are their biggest asset. Less

It depends on a person to person - if a resource is efficient and having skill to automate, the 16 hour work for a normal resource can be done in less than 8 hours ! Less

No, I am not interested in working for a company that doesn't value life/work balance. Thank you for your time and good day. Less

An analytical question about: Say you have ten stacks of coins with ten coins in each stack, each coin weighing 1g. However, one of the stacks has 2g coins instead of 1g coins. If you have a weighing scale and can only make one measurement, how do you determine which stack of coins weighs 2g each coin?

6 Answers

It's simple. Take 1 coin from the first stack, 2 coins from the second, 3 from the thirds - you see where this is going - finally 10 from tenth stack. put them on weighing scale. If in result you get 56 - it was first stack, 57 - second.... 65 - tenth stack. Less

1-If all the coins are made from the same material and same diameter, then the heavier coin stack should be slightly taller. 2- Weight all the stacks at once, and remove each stack until you see a dip in the tota weight . Less

I didn't quite understand what you meant. So there are 10 coins, 9 weigh 1 gram, and one weighs 2 grams? The second sentence seems contradictory. If you can only make one measurement, then you would divide the stacks into two. Place each stack on either scale, and whichever one is heavier contains the 2g coin. Less
