### Senior Systems Test Engineer at Qualcomm was asked...

 There is a body of water that starts with 1 square unit, and doubles in size every day (2 units after 2 days, 4 units after 4 days). It takes 100 days to fill up. How many days would it take to fill if you started with 2 square units?6 Answers100 - 1 = 99 daysThis question is phrased incorrectly. I think you meant "4 units after 3 days". Which makes your answer wrong as well. This is not helpful at all.if you start with 1sq unit - lets say you end up with 'x' amount to fill up - takes 100 days if you start with 2 sq unit - you will have to fill up '2x' amount thus it will take - 200 days.Show More ResponsesStarting with 2 square units at time t=0 is like 1 square unit at t = 1. [this logic is the key to answering the question]. Now let's do the first few cases. t = 0: size = 1+1 = 2 t = 1: size = 2(1+1) = 2+2 = 4 = f(2) in the 1 unit case. Pretty easy to see it only requires 1 time period less from here. The OP was right.1 day less that is 99 days.It is still 100 days. Starting from 2^0, and going all the way to 2^100, the reservoir has a capacity of 2^101 - 1 units. Now in the second case, starting from 2^1, in 99 days there will be 2^101-2 units of water in the reservoir, which is one unit short of the capacity of the reservoir. So we need the 100th day to fill it up!
