There is a person who jumps and covers 1/2 distance of his last jump, will he reach his target soon or not?
I have previously written about other questions which I think I failed to answer during an interview:
Are CNNs rotation invariant and how to cater this?
Yet another interview question
What does the rank of a matrix tell us about the solution?
Another question I got in an interview
Let’s say, we have to cover 40 metres and the previous jump covered 10 metres, next will cover 5 metres, 2.5 after that, 1.25 and so on.
This will accumulate as follows:
10 + 5 + 2.5 + 1.25 + 0.625 + 0.3125 + 0.15625 + 0.078125 + 0.0390625 + 0.01953125 + 0.009765625 + 0.004882813 …….
Whether the distance will be covered soon or not depends on the initial jump and total distance to be covered. If the difference between the distance covered by the initial jump and the total distance to be covered is small, it would require less time to reach the target and vice versa.
