3 Answers

Is this correct? A stock buyback with reduce cash and equity, which increase the leverage ratio. That would increase the CDS spread. Less

Yorkville seems right. Leverage goes up and there is less cash now. Higher risk of default leads to higher risk premium --> higher cds spread Less

We choose 6 random numbers out of the first 12 prime numbers. What is the probability that the sum is odd

the answer is simply the probability you dont choose 2 assuming the numbers you choose are unique. if there is replacement, its the probability you pick an odd number of 2's. Less

Yeah, just the probability you don't pick a 2. Since you're picking 6 out of 12; Let E(X_n) be the expectation of the indicator variable X_n which takes value 1 if n is chosen and 0 otherwise, then by linearity of expectation, the sum over all 12 E(X_n)s (n=2,3,5,...,p_12) is 6 and since the primes are chosen uniformly, E(X_n)=1/2 for each n. Note that the expectation of an indicator variable is just the probability. So the answer is 1/2. Less

This wasn't difficult, but it's the only specific question I can remember. You're playing basketball and you're down by 2. You know you can hit a 2-pointer to tie the game with 28% probability, and then go on to win the game in overtime with 50% probability. Alternatively, you know you can hit a 3-pointer and win with 15% probability. Which do you take?

2 Answers

The 3-pointer

3-pointer. First option has a probability of 14% of wining (0.28x0.5) whilst the second option gives you a probability of 28%. Less

They asked questions about technical projects on resumé and statistics based questions. Some mathematics brain teasers. e.g. describe penalty term for lasso regression/sum natural numbers up to 100.

1 Answers

I described my projects by framing them with respect to what I learned through them. Discussed the L1 penalty which penalizes the absolute value of the sum of non-zero coefficients. Explained the derivation of n(n+1)/2 formula for the sum of the first n natural numbers. Less
