 Given 999 distinct numbers between 1 and 1000, find one/two that is/are missing. 4 Answers one is missing: there are plenty of ways of doing this, simplest is to sum all numbers, subtract from 1+2+...+1000. two are missing: you'd need 2 equations, a+b = something, and a*b = something_else. first equation can be generated using the technique mentioned above, try summing the squares of numbers for the next equation. missign number = Sum to 1000 - Sum of all given numbers. Its 1 and 1000, cuz the question say between 1 to 1000, i.e., now only 1 and 1000 are left Show More Responses 1 number missing: Calculate sum of numbers 1 - 1000 , which is (1000)(1001) / 2, and then subtract actual sum from that. You'll get your missing number. 2 numbers missing: Calculate sum of numbers AND sum of squares of numbers (n)(n + 1)(2n + 1) / 6, subtract from actual sum. You have two equations, two variables, solve. You can continue this pattern for n numbers, pretty sure.

 3rd Interview: "So I have a client. And based on some new regulation, his compliance department has to start putting out [insert trade resolution document here].

So right now the lawyers and our team are prepping them to be compliant when the rule is phased in, but how do I fix this problem:" 2 Answers "I don't know, that seems really challenging" (Was exactly what the interviewer wanted- he was making a point that soft skills and process engineering are different and in his opinion more challenging than financial modeling) Was this the question you were asked during your case interview?

 Case question: Determine how to increase revenues for the owner of private ATM machines 2 Answers You want to look at the competitive environment around the ATM machines. Clarify that 'private' means that everyone who uses it must pay a certain fee, then assess that fee and what competing ATM machines are charging in the vicinity. Look at substitutions in the market (e.g. Walgreens a block away that allows up to XX dollars cashback with no fee), and gauge what value you bring the consumer. After you know this, you have a few options: 1) increase the fee for customers 2) negotiate with the customers' banks that you'll charge them more and the banks will charge them less, so the double charge is still the same 3) Build more ATM's in areas that have less competition, such as underserved bars, state fairs, events, casinos, etc... 4) Charge a tiered fee instead of a flat fee, with incentives to withdraw more. e.g. 2.50 to withdraw 0-20 dollars, but 3.00 to withdraw 20-40, etc... 5) Try to create seasonal balance by placing ATM's in accessible areas that will be used in all four seasons. Hey Tim Thanks for the inputs, appreciate it. Do you have any more interesting cases on you that you'd like to share?
