 A study has a quota of 200. If you can expect 80% of you sample to recovery in 6 days, how many pieces of sample will need to be added to the study in order to reach quota in 6 days.4 Answers250I think the correct answer would be "50" because they ask how many pieces will need to be added.80% of 200 is 160 so would it be 40 that is needed?Show More Responses200/80% = 200/0.80 = 250 Hence, sample need to be added = 250- 200 = 50

### Field Auto Technical Claims Adjuster at Allstate was asked...

Jan 3, 2013
 The one unscripted question was: I am a customer, and you wrote the estimate on my car up as a 3 hour repair on the quarter panel, and I say I want it replaced. What do you say?1 AnswerI would reference the company policy explaining that the amount of damage done to the quarter panels warrants a repair, not a replacement. If the customer fears the safety of the car will be compromised, I would ensure them that the damage was mostly cosmetic and not structural.

 How would you handle a differing opinion from another experienced Engineer.1 AnswerLet him explain his position in detail. Agree with as much as I can, using "I" statements, never using "I don't think YOU. . ." Additionally, I use alot of diagram detail to explain my positions, which proves confidence and most people are visual learners.

 If water in a well rises 2 feet each day and falls 1 foot each night, how long til the water reaches the top of a 10 foot well9 Answerson the 9th day2*X-1*X=10 then X=10 X= days passed2*X-1*X=10 then X=10 X= days passedShow More ResponsesIt will reach the top on the 9th day, the question only asks about reaching the top and not remaining at a 10 foot level. The level will be 8 ft at the end of 8th day and then it will go up to 10ft the next day; day 9.every day it rises 2 feet during the day and one feet at night it drops basically it rises only 1 foot each day and shall take 10 days to get to 10 feet.net gain per day of 1 ft, with a peak gain of 2 ft. If day=12 hrs and night = 12 hrs, then the peak on day 9 will reach the 10 ft mark, or 8.5 daysMeans you best have mop and bucket by days end of the 8th dayThe question is missing boundary conditions. What level did the water start at? What time of year is it (how many hours in the day vs night)? What is the flow rate between the maxima and minima? You can't really answer it until you know those.It doesn't matter because I'z aint fetching the water for Ms. Sally. Today is insurrection.

 If you placed a perforating gun 2000 ft underneath the ground and ignite the charge. Which direction would it blast? If you were do the same, but the depth was 200 ft, would you expect the same direction? Why?7 Answerswould you mind to tell me were i can find the answer ?Where is the oxigen that is needed to ignite?don't you aim perf guns? Perhaps he is looking for the direction of the least horizontal stress in the earth ?Show More ResponsesUnless you are using TCP with an orienting sub, or some gyro method with wireline guns, you cannot orient wireline guns. I have not heard of any orietation for wireline guns. Guns run on wireline, assuming equally balanced, will rotate as per well geometry with turn and when blindly perfingbat 2000 ft and 200 ft the holes will be oriented differently.It will blast in the direction of the minimum horizontal stressYesAt 2000' assuming maximum stress is in vertical direction, the fracture will move in vertical direction. And at 200' the fracture will move in horizontal direction.

 On a clock, what is the difference in the angle of the minute hand and the hour hand when the clock shows 3:15.5 AnswersYou can answer this question a number of ways with trig. But the simplest way is to think about it. a Circle (clock) is 360 degrees. A clock as 60 mniutes on it. 360/60=6 degrees per minute If the clock reads 3:15, that means the hour hand is on the 3, and the minute hand is 1 minute past the 3. Therefore the answer is: 6 degreesThe minute hand is front of the hour hand.The answer is simply, ZERO!Show More ResponsesIf a clock reads 3:15, then the minute hand is on the "3" (at zero degrees given a standard unit circle configuration). The hour hand is a little ways past the 3, a quarter of the way to the 4. There are 360/12= 30 degrees in each hour section. Since the hour hand has advanced a quarter of the way through the 3-4 hour section, 30/4= 7.5 degrees. So the hour hand is at -7.5 degrees and the minute hand at 0 degrees. There is a 7.5 degree difference.6 degrees

 You are hiking through the jungle and stumble across a treasure chest in a 9ft DIA, 11 ft deep hole. List solutions to the retrieval of the treasure chest.5 AnswersVaried. I imagine creative, technically sound, and out-of-the-box answers would be the most noticeable.If the chest has handles, you can create a mechanical structure over the hole, to winch it up. If it does not, drop a ladder into the hole, climb down and attempt to open treasure chest. Small C4 charge and some det cord should get you around most locks. There are endless answers, a crane, etc...I will try to get a ladder or tie a rope to a tree nearby, go down the hole and carry the treasure chest in my hands out of the hole. The point is they have not mentioned anything about the treasure chest size. So i will presume it to be a small size chest.Show More ResponsesDig a slot on the edge of the hole to 11ft outside maybe and make a ramp. It will give you a 45degree slope to go down and pull the chest up.Don't do anything. Call for help
