### 1. how may golfballs fit in 747 2. why manhole covers round

2 respuestas

Most likely the answer to the 747 question. If it were me, I would have said that though there are countless ways to quantify the actual figure, if one were truly interested you could fill the cabin with liquid, and drain the liquid into a container. Then measure the volume of liquid displaced. Then, you'd need to know the volume of the golf ball, which you could do either with volume equations or by displacement again. Then, find the volume of the square with all sides equal to the diameter of the ball. Divide the volume of the ball by the volume of the square, and then multiply the quotient by the volume of water drained from the 747. Finally, divide the volume of the 747 by the volume of the golf ball, and you've got your number. The reason for the square volume being factored if because golf balls would create negative space not reflected in the fluid. Anyway, that's what I would say. Menos

### How many gas stations are in the US?

2 respuestas

No idea how to answer that question without sounding like a fool.

These types of problems are meant to challenge your problem solving and critical thinking ability. We tell all candidates at the start of the problem: "It's not about getting the right answer. What's more important is how you work through the problem and, using what you know, come up with the best estimate." We hope that more than anything you will welcome the challenge and be eager to tackle it using your genius! :-) Menos

### Basic terminology and discussing how to walk through problems

1 respuestas

Unfortunately, there is some confusion as this respondent has described an interview that did not occur at this Catalyst Search Group - there are a number of companies with Catalyst in the title so we can understand the confusion. We have never hired for a SEM Manager for our company (as the interviewer describes), nor have we ever been engaged by a client to fill a role with this title. There are a couple of other statements within this review which would make this impossible and would be glad to describe to Glassdoor off-line. Thank you. Menos
