Hedge Fund Brainteasers: You Are Shrunk to the Size of a Nickel

EP 851 Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter provides you with an answer to this old time Google interview question


I want to do another tough interview. 1 of those brainteasers. I think you'll find it fun... Like most brainteasers it really isn't all that tough..

You are shrunk to the height of the nickel and your masses proportionally reduced so as to maintain your original density. You are then thrown into an empty glass blender. The blender will start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do?

Ready for the answer?

You jump.

You see, the key is in the density. Once you are at your original density, you have the strength to be able to job. Thus, you have the ability to jump out of the blender and beat the crap out of the interviewer who put you in there.
