### Financial Software Development - Internship at Bloomberg L.P. was asked...

 Most efficient way to find the most frequent number (0-255) in a string of numbers4 AnswersMapI think they were probably looking for a tweaked pidgeonhole sort to count the duplicates.//count in two passes.. int function() { int nums[255]; //assume this array holds all the number between 0 to 255 int counter[255] = {0,};//all init to zero for(int i=0;i counts[i]) max = i; } return max; }Show more responsesPrevious solution is okay. Since your data type is in range [0,255] (1 byte), then storing an array of counters and 2 loops is a good trade off memory/cpu consumption. So your code will run in 2n time( linear, O(n)), and use 256 * sizeof(size_t). Interviewer wasn't interested in algorithm, he was interested how you can make trade offs mem/cpu

 How work you work out all the prime numbers up to a given range?3 AnswersStore all the prime numbers in an array and compare the next number with the array to find out whether it is prime or not.Sieve of Eratosthenes algorithm. create an array of the numbers, set them all to the value 1. Start at 2, set every second number after 2 to 0. move to the next number (3). change every third number after three to zero. stop when there's no more numbers set to 1 or you reach the end of the array. At the end, the numbers marked 1 are the primes.Interview candidate - did you give that answer in the interview? If so, what did they say?

 Motivational question Competency based questions Relevant experience Market sizing questions: how many piano tuners are there in London ?2 AnswersWhat is the population of London? What is the average number of people to a household? What proportion of households have regularly tuned pianos? How many times do you tune a piano a year? How many pianos can one tuner tune a day ? How many days a year does a piano tuner work? No Piano Tuners = (Number of Pianos in London)/(Number of Pianos tuned per time period per piano tuner)The replacement theory works, only if you have to estimate the number per time period. Otherwise, like in this example, it doesn't work.

 How do you help your family in the everyday needs2 AnswersHelping themI think this questions was probably asked because the interviewee had no work experience to draw on. We are a company that goes the extra mile to anticipate our guests' needs and ensure we are offering a personalised experience. If someone hasn't had a previous position in a customer facing environment at a high enough level of service for us, we may see if they have had to display similar care to someone in their persona life instead. So perhaps when someone close to you has needed something or been ill and you have cared for them or done something thoughtful...? This would show us whether you are able to reach our standards or not. Hope this helps and by the looks, you gave a good answer! All the best, Liz
