If you were asked to unload a 747 full of jelly beans, what would you do?

60 Answers

Assuming they are loose jellybeans, and their unloading needs to be managed rather than just dumped on the tarmac ... Start by phoning the people at the other end, of the process. They managed to load an entire plane with jellybeans! Any group that can figure out how to fill a plane with jellybeans may be a big help in undoing this mess. Less

Put an ad on craigslist "Free jellybeans - won't last. Hurry!". They'll all be gone in no time. Less

I would do it. The question is not "how" you would do it.

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...

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

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

Why are pot hole covers round and not square?

10 Answers

It makes sense to make them round because they can not fall through if ever accidentally uncovered. If squeare => the lid falls in diagonally. Less

So that if someone mistakenly drops it in on its side it won't fall into the hole. A square cover dropped mistakenly diagonally on its side would fall in. Less

Its because the round shape causes the impact of cars and trucks to be distributed evenly. If it was square, the impact would be highest at the corners causing the cover to break. Less

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

9 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

Capital One

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

Its hypothetical - IF they were given the card and IF they defaulted on it... how many of them would have to default in order for the losses from their accounts to justify the $1/application cost of rejecting them. Less

Deloitte

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
