Is there any other questions you can remember of? I have this same interview in 2 days time Less

The interview is quite relaxed so don't worry too much. They made me talk through a bit about me and go through my CV. Questions were mostly based on you and what you say about your CV. Some other questions that struck to me were though 1. What is your greatest achievement? 2. How do you organise your projects? 3. How do you prioritise your work? 4. Explain scenario where you had to deal with a difficult client. That's all I can remember. Goodluck! Less

Thank you very much, I will definitely take the advice on board

You have a given set of prices in an Array, find at which price you should buy and at which price you should sell so that you maximize the gain

3 Answers

The idea for the linear solution is, that when the next price is lower than current minimum, you should sell all for the previous maximum and buy for the new minimum. It is actually similar to looking for maximum difference where the min is predecessor of max. Code for the linear solution: void sell_points(const vector& data) { cout data[max]) { max = i; } } // last run if (data[min] < data[max] && max != last_max) { cout << "Buy:\t#" << min << " (price: " << data[min] << ")" << endl; cout << "Sell:\t#" << max << " (price: " << data[max] << ")" << endl; } } Less

(the last_max check is actually not necessary, in the code I forgot to set it appropriately but it is not needed anyway) Less

The brute-force solution is to compare each price to those further on and to return the greatest gain. Otherwise I tried a linear solution but I was not sure about the solution. Less
