How many race heats are needed to find the 3 fastest pinewood derby cars out of a field of 8, if only 4 cars can run at a time (assuming that every car will always run the way/speed and each lane is exactly equivalent)?

8 Answers

so is the answer 4 heat 1 (first 4 car) + 1 (4 second set) + 1( Top 2 from first + Top 2 from second set) + 1 (3 car heat among the 3rd placed car) Less

Only two races of four cars in each. Get the times of all cars and sort them. You don't need any more races because the times will be the same in subsequent races. :) Less

You begin working on a case with a client in an industry that your boss is an expert in. You have a meeting coming up tomorrow with the client but your boss drops out last minute due to an emergency. You know next to nothing about the industry or the case. What do you do?

6 Answers

Thanks so much. It's been two weeks but it's a weekend, so I shall wait a bit more! :) Much obliged, good luck with the new job!! Less

It is too late notice to reschedule the meeting. I would learn as much as I could about the industry and the case in the time available. I would enter the meeting presenting him/her with what I have come up with and be confident in my recommendations to reassure the client. It would be disrespectful to the client to show up to the meeting with nothing despite the circumstances. Less

given 8 coins and one of them heavier than the others, how many weighings will be needed to find the odd one ?

5 Answers

two weighings are needed. separate into three groups (3,3,2) put three on each side of scale, if sides balance then place two remaining coins on either side of scale to see which is heavier. If sides don't balance, take two coins from the heavier side and put on the scale to see if one is heavier, if they balance, the one you took off is the heaviest. Less

@Cigar lover ... no. once you put coins on the scale, that counts as a weighing, and every time you remove coins it counts as a weighing. this boils down to the 3-3-2 solution above. the first time you remove 2 and weight, you are weighing 3-3. at that point there are 3 possibilities still. the scale is even, or one or the other side is down. you have to do one more weighing from there. Less

divide it into 2 group of 4 each.remove the group that weighs less.then divide the remaining 4 into 2 groups of 2 each.remove the group weigh less.again weigh the remaining 2.u get the heavier one.so 3 weighing. Less

Confidence is the good trait to have where a person is sure about his course of action or activity and it comes from past success and right decisions. Overconfidence is excessive belief in their own abilities ignoring the fact that their decision can be wrong too. Less
