 The distance between LA and NY is 3,000 miles. A train leaves LA and heads for NY at 100 mph. At the same time a bird leaves LA and heads to NY traveling at 300 mph. When the bird reaches NY it will turn around and head back to the train. Upon reaching the train the bird will turn around and head back to NY. This will repeat continuously until both the bird and the train are in NY.4 AnswersThis is the one that truly stumped me and I ended up wasting almost 75 minutes on.I assume the question was to calculate the total distance traveled by the bird? which is equal to the time taken by the train to reach NY (3000 miles / 100mph = 30 hours). Bird distance = 30 hours X 300mph = 9000 milesWhat's the question? Was the question how many times they would meet each other?Show More ResponsesThat would be hard to calculate, given there's no wind speed factor. You can't determine the answer if you don't know how the air currents are flowing and can't measure resistance. Additionally, delays may be met by the train.

 You have 8 coins. One is slightly heavier than the other 7. You have a scale. It costs \$100 each time you use the scale. If you identify the heaviest coin you will get \$250.4 AnswersThe closest I could get was losing \$50.Easy, I can get it done for \$200 and still gain \$50.Take 6 coins and weigh 3 on each side (cost: \$100). If they are even weigh the remaining two coins (cost: \$100). You get \$50. If they are NOT even take the 3 coins on the heavy side. Weigh two of the coins (cost: \$100) Either way, you have the heavy coin and have \$50.Show More ResponsesFirst, I'd ask what the coins are (nickel, penny, etc.). If 7 are pennies and one is a nickel, I don't need to weigh them. I'll take the entire \$250 thank you.

 One of the owners asked me why do you want to work in a start up, after you worked for huge companies? And what was my biggest concern if I get the position1 AnswerI told him that I would be happy to learn from entrepreneurs, and cooperate with any previously learned knowledge from my previous experiences. I also told him that my biggest concern of working in a small, family company, would be to collide with family decisions, at one point or the other. (Maybe this is what ruined the whole process???)
