Hedge Fund Brainteasers: Do You Have More, Less or The Same? | JobSearchTV.com


Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter offers an answer to this cute little brainteaser.

Summary

I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. And let's do one more brain teaser before I go off into different tangents, okay, so, excuse me I'm going to read it all a screen.
You invest $100 in a company. You earn 10% in your first year, but lose 10% in the second year. At the end of the second year, you have more or less or the same as you started with?
So, here's the idea again. 10% If you have $100 you make 10%. The first year you lose 10%. The second year, do you have more or less or the same as when you started?
You have less. Here's why.
After one year you made 10% or $10, That's $110. Then, you lose 10% or $11. Remember, it's $110 dollars by 10%. That's $11.
So you are now at $99. In other words, you have less than what you started off with. I know the instinct is to think in terms of 10% up. 10% down. It's the same money, but you have less.

Which Carton Has Which Eggs? | JobSearchTV.com


In this video, Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter poses one of those tricky brainteaser questions that is so often used by hedge funds and investment banks.

Summary

Today, I want to do 1 of those hedge fund brainteaser questions that I know you all love. You're on an interview and someone peels out 1 of these questions, I'm sure you're going to go, "What the…" to yourself and then try to sort through. This 1 is a fun one.

The scenario is you have 3 cartons of eggs, they are all incorrectly marked. One is marked being eggs, one is marked small eggs, and one is marked mixed eggs. How many boxes of eggs you need to open in order to figure out which is which?

The 1st time I heard this question years ago, I thought to myself, "You have to open two," and then I paused and went, "NO!!" You only need to open one. Let me show you how.

Let's say, you open up a box of eggs that is marked as mixed. In fact, there are small eggs in there. Now, you are left with 2 boxes of eggs that you know are marked incorrectly, right? You should know which of the eggs is in which box because they are marked incorrectly. Thus, the one marked mixed might have the small ones.

When all is said and done, all you have to do is open up one box of eggs to be able to figure out this little. Then, you can say to them, "can I show you this? It Is kind of hard to explain." The idea is very simple. Whatever you open up, the other 2 boxes are also marked incorrectly so you know what they have.

How Many Square Feet of Pizza Are Eaten in the US Each Year? | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com


Listen to the full episode here
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thebiggamehunter/2019/02/18/how-many-square-feet-of-pizza-are-eaten-in-the-us-each-year

EP 1379 What a delightful question! With an acknowledgement to Yahoo! Finance and Business Insider, I walk through answering this one.

Summary

The question for today is, "how many square feet of pizza are even in the US each year?"

I want to give credit to Yahoo! Finance for carrying an article from Business Insider from 2015 that walk through a way to solve this.

The solution is really about talking out loud and being plausible. Ostensibly this is a question that Goldman and a number of other firms ask on their interviews . But, I want to be clear, the exact answer isn't the important thing. It's the process that you go through that is.

Here is what you do:
Listen to the question very carefully and if you're unsure about something ask for any sort of clarification that you think you need or if you need additional information.
From there, use a launch point.

Here's how to go through it.

If there are 320 million people in the US, how many square feet of pizza do they eat each year? To get the number, you have to figure out how many of these people actually eat pizza each year. For the sake of simplicity, startup of the round number. So, you would say, "Let's say there are about 200 million pizza eaters and that is about two thirds of the total US population. I may be being conservative but round numbers are always easier to work with." You say that out loud.

Once you have the actual population of pizza eaters you need to have the rate of pizza consumption per person. Work with the assumption of 4 slices of pizza per person per month. In other words, 48 slices per year. That can be way off, but it's a reasonable guess. Again, it's logic that matters, not the numbers.

Now, translate pizza slices into square feet. Estimate the area of a triangle. So take the base times the height and divided by 2. If the pizza slices 6 inches at the base and 10 inches long, the area is 30 inches. Multiply 30 in.² by 48 slices per year and you have the average square inches eaten per person-- 1440. Multiply that by 200 million and you have 288,000,000,000 in.² of pizza.

Hedge Fund Brainteasers: What’s The Next Number in This Sequence? | JobSearchTV.com


Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter offers one of those fun interview brainteasers that companies use on interviews.

Summary

I've got one of those fun, tough interview questions for you. I'm going to read it off the screen. You'll understand why in a moment.
What's the next number in this sequence? 10, 9, 60, 90, 70, 66.
So, what's the next number in that sequence? I'm going to repeat it again. 10, 9, 60, 90, 70, 66
The answer, the question comes from not the numbers but the number of letters for each number.
So, 10 has three letters nine has 4, 60 has 5, 90 has 6, 70 has 7, 66 has eight. So your next answer could be (I'll give you two possibilities) 96 is one but, if you want to have some fun and really end the game right there, you can use googol. Google misspelled it when they started the firm, but you answer it with either 96 which has the next number of letters or googol.

How Did The Dog Cross The River Without Getting Wet? | NoBSJobSearchAdvice.com


Listen to the full episode here:
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thebiggamehunter/2017/02/01/how-did-the-dog-cross-the-river-without-getting-wet

Ep 642 Another fun brainteaser used on job interviews.

Summary

Today, I am 1 of those shows that as a brainteaser for you. Here's how it goes: a man stands on one side of the river, his dog on the other. The man calls his dog who immediately crosses the river without getting wet and without using a bridge or a boat. How did the dog do that?

The answer is they were at the North Pole or Minnesota in the middle of winter or Wisconsin in the middle of winter and the river was frozen.

Firms use brainteasers like this to see if your mind is creative enough to explore different options from different angles. In this case, why was the river not getting the dog wet?
