 We play a game. You flip two coins, if you get both heads I give you \$1. If you get both tails you flip again. If you get one of each, I pay you nothing. What's the expected value of this game?5 AnswersDismiss TT since it is not part of the sample space (ie there is no outcome from it) You are twice as likely to get one of each (H-T or T-H) versus getting both heads answer: (2/3)(\$1) + (1/3)(0) = 66.7 centsE=0.25x1+0.5x0+0.25xE 0.75xE=0.25 E=0.33interviewer told me .667 is correctShow More ResponsesHT and TH add up to 1/2 of the probability with zero payout. HH is 1/4 probability with \$1 payout. TT results in a "reset" so we can disregard. After we normalize the probabilities, we get: E[payout]= (1/3)*\$1 + (2/3)*\$0 = \$0.33You can also see it a geometric series. By writing E=0.25x1+0.5x0+0.25xE, Kerzane could as well have written E?0.25x1 + 0.5x0 + 0.25x(0.25x1 + 0.5x0 + 0.25x(0.25x1 + 0.5x0 + 0.25x(....))) This is quite simply the geometric sum: (n-> infinity) E=0.25 + 0.25^2 + 0.25^3....0.25^n which is equal to 0.25/(1-0.25) = 0.25/0.75 = 1/3 or 0.333

 The online assessment asked me to rank values from most to least important, rather than assigning each one its own score. Thus, if I ranked some at the top, the others ended up at the bottom. This is different from the usual procuedure with such assessments.1 AnswerI don't agree that certain values are necessarily less important than others. All the values important to an employer should be important to an employee. It was a brain teaser, to say the least. Just try to answer to the best of your abilities and you should be fine- they liked my answers in the end, apparently.
