Something similar to: You have 7 baskets and 15 eggs. How

  many ways can you put the eggs in the baskets? Eggs must be grouped in odd numbers.

Interview Answer

1 Answer


Its easier to draw out, but they're looking for creativity. You can write out assumptions like: not every basket needs to hold an egg, you can place baskets within baskets, etc. So in addition to the obvious permutations you can also start eliminating baskets and create combinations of baskets inside baskets and such.
