25 horses, 5 race tracks. How many races you have to run to select top 5 horses.

You guys are not doing CS! 10 runs is my answer. 1. randomize 5 groups, each of 5 horses 2. rank them within each group, I will use Anuradha's notation (5 races) 3. pick the best of each group, race to figure the 1st place, call it A1 (1 race) It should be clear, it wins all times, every one lost once. 4. remove it. substitute 2nd best in. repeat 3 (in my eg. A2,B1,C1,D1,E1) now you have second place. keep going, you get the first 5 and ranking! So, 5+5=10 races in total. Less

The answer is 9. Assuming: - There's no time measuring (stopwatch), just relative places. - The horses perform consistently. - A maximum of 5 horses per race. First we need 5 races (A to E) to get relative scores for all 25 horses. Let's take a worst scenario: the list was already ordered (A1 fastest and E5 slowest), so race A contained the top 5. The 6th race would be the winners of the 5 races (A1, B1, C1, D1, E1), and would give A1 as the fastest of all. This would also mean that some horses can be excluded (only 4 more places to fill): B5 C4, C5 D3, D4, D5 E2, E3, E4, E5 For the 7th race, A2 would replace A1, and A2 would be appointed as the runner-up (of all). We also can exclude some more (only 3 more places to fill): B4 C3 D2 E1 For the 8th race, A3 would replace A2, but as E1 has been excluded, we got a vacancy. Let's add C2 for worst case scenario. The winner would be A3, and we can exclude more horses (only 2 more places to fill): B3 C2 D1 At this point there're only 5 horses who have not yet been classified or excluded, so the winner and runner-up of the 9th race would give 4th and 5th overall. Less

Anuradha's solution still has problems. (Even if we go with Anuradha's assumptions that you can only race one horse per track, and also assuming that we don't have a stopwatch and must compare horses placing positions) What if the fastest five horses are A1, B1, C1, D1, and E1 ? In Anuradha's second step, he elminates two of the fastest horses (D1 and E1) . He's assuming that A2, B2, or some of the other horses from the other heats are faster, but he hasn't actually tested to see if that is true. Less

inane interview questions

The kardashians

Answering stupid questions from moronic interviewers.

Most of the questions they asked where all from the phone interview.

was the location for JFK?

I have a f2f next week

btw the interview sounds similar to delta f2f as well.

Why do u want to work for JetBlue

June 30

Why are they taking so long? Have you contact them? Did you do your background and drug test Less

April interviewee, how long after your interview, did they contact you regarding bkgrd n fp? Less

1)Tell me what you know about JetBlue? 2) what do you like or dislike about your current employer? 3)tell me a time you went out of the box for a customer? 4) tell me a time an employee didn't do their job and what did you do?

I also interviewed at the LIC headquarters on October 5th 2015 and got an email that ask for DOB and SS# and there was an email stating that there was an issue with the link that was given and that we should wait for the next day which would've been Oct 9th. Then just yesterday Oct 21st I got the email stating they got my info and that they appreciated my patience in this matter.. So I'm sure it's just a matter of time for the background check to happen Less

I just got the e mail that tey received my information. I guess the next step is background check. Less

Interviewed at the Long Island City base for the Ground Ops part time position on Monday October 5, 2015. No call back yet. Received an email with a link on the 8th requesting my ss# and DOB. Waiting for feedback. Less

Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 10 how weird you are.

One number lower than whoever came up with this question

I am within two standard deviations from the norm...

If I handed you a rubiks cube and told you that it had to be solved by tomorrow, how would you respond?

Such questions are really stupid IMHO and I feel like punching the interviewer for asking crap like this. I don't think such questions prove anything. A person can be really good at handling situations but not respond likewise and a pretentious person can do very well in such cases but do a horrible job when hired. Please interviewers stop with such questions! Less

Anyone that asks a question of this nature is looking for a typical, corporate behind kissing answer. personally I was much more impressed with your honest answer than I would be by someone, whose nature and work ability I have no idea about, answering like someone else did on this with "You'll have it today." You could have answered with that and have not the first clue about "customer service", because it is just a brown nosing answer. To me, a good answer is honest and forthright, and I never want to just hear what the interviewee thinks I want to hear. Less

If I were asked this question I would say, "You'll have it today". How you do it isn't too important, there are literally a million ways to "solve" the rubiks cube they're handing you, it's not a cube, it's any problem they need solved, just get it done as soon as you can, wouldn't you like it if you asked someone to do something &amp; they went above &amp; beyond? Whether it's an inter-office request or anything else, you are always either someone's customer or vendor &amp; this is called "giving excellent customer service". This question is begging for Excellent Customer Service. Less

If in a room there are 10 persons and if each person has to shake hands with all other then total how many hand shakes will be there

10C2=45

10(10-1)/2

simply formulas: n*(n-1)/2 (n-1)*(n/2)

If u are running at 10km/hr and anothet person is running st 20km/hr then in which round u both will be at same point

No matter what size track they run on, they will meet at the starting line every two laps. Less

With slower person's perspective, they will meet at starting point each round. Person running 10 km/hr, will complete one round, while the other person will complete two round during same time. Less

Yes, with reference to the slower runner, they'll meet every round and with reference to the faster runner, they'll meet every alternate round. Less
