 1. how may golfballs fit in 747 2. why manhole covers round 2 Answers1. just try to reason out how you'd go about calculating that. 2. check wikipedia for list of good reasons. I managed to come up with a couple on the listMost likely the answer to the 747 question. If it were me, I would have said that though there are countless ways to quantify the actual figure, if one were truly interested you could fill the cabin with liquid, and drain the liquid into a container. Then measure the volume of liquid displaced. Then, you'd need to know the volume of the golf ball, which you could do either with volume equations or by displacement again. Then, find the volume of the square with all sides equal to the diameter of the ball. Divide the volume of the ball by the volume of the square, and then multiply the quotient by the volume of water drained from the 747. Finally, divide the volume of the 747 by the volume of the golf ball, and you've got your number. The reason for the square volume being factored if because golf balls would create negative space not reflected in the fluid. Anyway, that's what I would say.

### Inside Sales Representative at Oracle was asked...

Mar 7, 2011
 Why do you want to work for us?3 Answersthe usual response. But it should have been 'why indeed!'Your law degree would have been useful to review Oracle's draconian employee contract. They will not budge on the terms and when they lay you off, the severance they offer will be a joke. Oracle will go to great lengths to defend and as a result has made numerous ex-employees bitter enemies.Oracle Sucks as an employer. It really depends on the manager who you work for... because he/she can sheild you a bit from corporate laws and processes

 there are 2 ropes. Each takes 1 hour to totally burn off. But you cant say that half rope burns in 30 min. It is of irregular thickness. Using these 2 ropes how do you measure 45 minutes.2 Answersburn first rope at 2 ends. Burn second rope on one end only. Now we know that it is half hour when first burns totally. at this time burn the second rope at other end also. Now the remianing of the second rope takes 15 minUnfortunately, since the ropes do not burn at constant rates, you cannot assume that each half of a doubled-over rope will take 30 minutes to burn. If the question stipulates that the ropes burn at a constant rate and you don't have a way to measure them, this answer works.
