At a party everyone shakes hands, 66 hand shakes occur, how many people are at the party?

9 Answers


You can suppose there are n people in the room and think of them in a row. The first one has to shake hands with (n-1) people (because he doesn't have to shake hands with himself). The second one has already shaken hands with the first one, so he has (n-2) shakes remaining... and so on. So you have to sum: (n-1)+(n-2)+(n-3)+...+1= (n/2)*(n-1) Then you have to solve (n/2)*(n-1)=66 and you get n=12. Less

n(n-1)/2=66 so n=12

How many traffic lights are there in Houson?

4 Answers

Well, it's one of those estimation questions. The general idea is to come up with a structure for solving it that shows your thinking process and your ability to analyse a problem by identifying its key drivers and stripping it down to its essential parts. A good start to solving this one would be identifying where traffic lights are used - intersections. How many intersections? How many Streets? Just use a small borough/county as an estimate then multiply over the number of counties, get a figure, estimate how many lights per intersection, then you have a figure. Interviewers are more interested in how you arrived at your answer than the final answer in itself which is largely meaningless. Less

I would ask him, how many stars on the sky ...

Ask questioner what level of accuracy is required and how much time they are giving you to provide results. I would start by contacting the City Traffic Engg dept. If they will not give you the answer, ask what their criteria is for where they place traffic lights, obtain maps and pertinent data like traffic study results etc. Analyze information and arrive at results.
