### Project Manager/Implementation Consultant at Epic Systems Corporation (Wisconsin) was asked...

 How many minutes before 5pm is it if 30 mins ago it was four times as many minutes after 3pm?11 Answers1866Could someone show their math on this please - I had trouble on this question.Show More ResponsesThe correct answer is 24. 120 minutes between 3 & 5; 120 divided by 5 =24. 5pm less 24 minutes = 4:36pm 3pm plus 4 times 24 minutes (96 minutes) = 4:36pmYou're forgetting the part where it says: "30 mins ago." It's not four times as many minutes since 3.181818 mins before 5 = 4:42. 30 before 4:42 puts the time at 4:12. There are 72 minutes between 3 and 4:42 divided by 4 is 18. So the answer is 18 mins before 5pm.That last explanation seems like you need to know the answer before you even start trying to solve. My solution is as follows: 30 minutes before 5 is 4:30 leaving 90 minutes between 3 and then. The remaining time needs to be split into an interval so that x4 exists. The most logical interval would be in 5ths because the 4 proceeding intervals would be 4x greater then the following. 90/5=18 for each interval. 18 being four times less then 72 minutes proceeding it. This literally look me about a minute and a half to reason through, which I'm assuming the interviewer would not want to sit through. Guess I would fail.The answer is 18 minutes. It made sense to me to sketch a timeline showing the 3 components of time given in the problem that add up to the 120 minute total span. (X = minutes before 5pm, 30 min gap, and 4X is time between 3pm and the start of the 30 min gap.) Visually and chronologically it would look something like: 3pm --> 4X --> 30 min --> X --> 5pm. So then algebraically, the equation is 4X + 30 min + X = 120 min. Therefore 5X = 90 or X = 18.120 - x - 30 = 4 * x

 If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you, and why?12 AnswersWell, sadly, someone once said, upon meeting me for the first time, that I reminded him of Roseanne Barr. It made me very sad, because I find her extremely abrasive. However, if she could play a more Pollyanna type character, we do laugh similarly and are basically the same size.In America, someone white because that's all they care about.More than likely my part would be played by an actor who no one had really heard much about if at all, but his really really good.Show More ResponsesMolly Ringwald because I am very often compared to her.me-i am myself...AlfMyself, of course.

 A snail moves up a 5m long tree as follows: 1) he goes up 3m in the morning and 2) he goes down 2m at night. How long will it take him to reach the top of the 5m tree?5 Answers3 days. Not 5 days. Draw it out if you don't believe me.What was the technical interview about? Do they ask you questions about programming? I have the MANH interview soon and am not sure how to prepare for the technical interview! Thanks!@ Homer Simpson, The technical interview was simply them asking me to explain a "technical" process on the whiteboard. There was no programming, though I used a programming example in answering this question. The overall interview process requires little preparation, with the exception of the panel interview since I'm assuming you got the question before hand. Again they want to see the following: 1) Logical thought flow 2) Ability to present/explain on a white-board 3) Can assimulate concepts (including programming) quicklyShow More ResponsesThanks Boss for the quick reply! I just came back and I think it went well. How much time did they take to reply back to you?http://brainteaserbible.com/interview-brainteaser-snail-drainpipe-climbs-falls-at-night-how-long-reach-top

### Part-Time Apple Care At-Home Consultant at Apple was asked...

Sep 23, 2012
 A man calls in and has an older computer that is essentially a brick. What do you do? 5 AnswersCheck the power supply, try to start in Safe Mode, hold down the power buttonTry another power cord if there's one available. Check to see if pc is plugged into a power supply or power strip. If so, see if other equipment on that same strip works. Either way, plug something else into that same port or see if you can plug the computer into another outlet.The very first thing you need to know is why your customer is calling. What are they experiencing so you may effectively help them with their problem, brick or no brick.Show More ResponsesAsk when did it last work properly? Any changes since it worked last? (new hardware, cleaning, has it been moved?) Also ask if this is a laptop or desktop. Check power connections. If plugged in to back or side of computer firmly and into a socket, check if they are using power strip or UPS. If so, connect to direct to known working outlet in the wall, try to power up. Listen for fans, look for lights. If no fans can be heard and no lights seen and it is a desktop, check that the switch is on on the power supply and voltage is correct. If laptop, check the cord and pin for damage, verify that it too is plugged in to a known working outlet, and that it is the correct adapter made specifically for that computer. If all looks ok, Then check to see if there are any lights lit on the AC adapter if it has any. If a light is present but not lit, there is likely a problem with the AC adapter. Do they have another also specific to that computer make and model? If lit, it is possibly an issue with the power connector on computer, perhaps a short or broken connector inside. Desktop- voltage correct, plugged in to working wall outlet, power supply switch on, no fans or lights, no hardware changes, suspect power supply first. See if customer is under warranty, even though it is old they may have purchased extended warranty coverage. Recommend they take it to the manufacturer if so and if Apple maybe set up an appointment for them at the Genius Bar. Either way, it should be taken in for repair or replaced.Hvg
