Google interview questions in cunning quite a famous, even has some deified taste. This topic has been discussed many times, here posted 15 Google interview questions and one one gives the answer, many of which are very popular. What about? Below to warm up, see if you can go to the Google work!
The first question: how many golf balls can be filled with a school bus? (Job Title: Product Manager)
Analysis: through this problem, Google hopes to test whether the applicant has the ability to determine the key to solve the problem.
The answer: I think, a standard size of the bus is about 8 feet wide, 6 feet high and 20 feet long, can I know these numbers is because I once stuck behind the bus.
According to this estimate, a school bus volume of about 960 cubic feet, that is, 1 million 600 thousand cubic inches. The radius of a golf ball is about 0.85 inches, and I think the size of a golf ball is about 2.6 cubic inches.
The volume of the school bus is divided by the size of the golf ball, and the result is 660 thousand. However, because there are many things in the school bus, and so on, and the shape of the golf ball so that there will be a lot of space between different ball. My final estimate is 500 thousand. That sounds absurd. If I guess the answer, I give the answer is certainly less than 100 thousand, but I believe my math.
Of course, if the school bus here is the kind of George W. Bush that year, the result also divided by 2, almost 250 thousand.

Third question: there is a person who only want to have a boy in the country, they will continue to have a son before. If the first child is a daughter, they will continue to have a son. How much is the proportion of boys and girls in this country? (Job Title: Product Manager)
The answer to this question has caused quite a lot of controversy, but we have found that the answer to this question is as follows:
1, assuming a total of 10 couples, each pair of couples have a child, the proportion of men and women equal. (a total of 10 children, 5 men and 5 women);
5, of the 2 of the girls and the couple had 5 children, the same proportion of men and women. (a total of 15 children, both male and female are 7.5);
2.5, of the 3 of the girls and the couple had 2.5 children, the same proportion of men and women. (a total of 17.5 children, both male and female are 8.75);
4, therefore, the proportion of male and female is 1:1.
The fourth question: how many piano tuning divisions are there in the world? (Job Title: Product Manager)
Our answer is "to see the market situation. If the piano needs to be tuned once a week, 1 hours each time, and each 40 hours a week. We think every 40 piano needs a tuner."
This problem is called the "problem Fermi". Fermi's question is "how many piano tuning divisions in Chicago". A typical answer is the multiplication of a series of estimates. If the estimate is correct, we can get the right answer. For example, we use the following assumptions:
About 5 million people live in Chicago;
On average, there are 2 people in every family;
About 1/20's family has a regular piano tuning;
On average each piano every year;
Each tuner adjusts a piano for 2 hours;
Each tuner works 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year.
Through these assumptions we can calculate the number of piano that need to be tuned every year in Chicago:
(Chicago's population of 2) / (5 million persons / home) x (1 piano /20) x (1 piano tuning /1) =125000
The average number of piano tuned by each tuner is:
(50 week / year) x (5 days / week) x (8 hours / day) / (1 /2 hours) =1000
The number of the tuner in Chicago is:
(Chicago needs to tune the number 125000) / (1000) =125 of the piano every year.
