You have a building with 100 stories. You also have two glass balls. You can drop the glass balls as many times as you want before they break. How can you find the floor at which they start breaking with the fewest number of drops?

3 Answers

Not truly a brain teaser because the answer is mathematical.

If you have N stories, you use the first glass ball to increment by sqrt(N) stories. Once that ball breaks, you use your second to go to the level of sqrt(N) below where it broke, and increment floor by floor. You know it must break somewhere in that group of sqrt(N) stories. I believe this method gets you a runtime of O(n^0.5).

They asked me to write a function to find the amount of grouped words given an array of words. They also gave me a definition for a grouped word but I wont put that here. Know your basics and you're solid.

I would rather not disclose any interview questions. I will say that half the questions I got were very personalized, while the other half are similar to the ones you can find online... Know your algorithms, data structures, and design patterns. My networks, information security, databases, compilers, and finite state automata knowledge came in handy as well.
