According to a recent article in Business

Insider, Google is the second-best tech company to work at in 2018. The list was compiled after taking into account

what employees had written on the job website, Glassdoor. “Extremely intelligent and competent coworkers,

exciting products, great management, amazing perks,” said one Google engineer. Google is not only one of the world’s leading

tech companies, but has always sold itself as uber-cool, a little bit wacky and wonderful,

if not- according to some employees- stressful at times. These are hard fought for jobs, and you’ll

need to impress in the interview. Let’s see today if you’d pass muster in

an interview, in this episode of the Infographics Show, Could You Pass This Google Interview? We are going to start with one of the easiest

questions you might be asked, and if you can’t get past this one you might well be in trouble. Question: You need to check if your friend

has your correct phone number but must do it through a third party and a note you have

handed to that third party. The problem is you are not allowed to let

the third party know what your phone number is. What do you write on the note? We’ll give you some time to think about

each question. Answer: It seems this one is all about how

the question is asked. You see, you don’t have to speak to your

friend at all, you just need to know that he or she knows your correct number. So, just tell him to call you at a certain

time. If he calls you successfully you know he has

the correct number and if he doesn’t call you know he doesn’t have the correct number. This one you really should have got, but they

are going to get harder as we go on. Question: Why are manhole covers round? Answer: It’s because if they are round they

won’t fall through the hole. A rectangular manhole cover could be turned

and plop, there it goes down the hole. A round cover can also fit on the hole if

turned at any angle. There are other reasons, related to the shape

of humans that go down the manholes, and also the fact it’s easier to dig holes for round

covers. According to one website round castings are

also easier to make, but let’s face it, most interviewers won’t be expecting that

answer. Question: How many times a day do a clock’s

hands overlap? Answer: This one is kind of a trick question. You might just come right out and say 24. But that’s not correct. The hands will overlap at 12:00, 1:05, 2:10,

3:15, 4:20, 5:25, 6:30, 7:35, 8:40, 9:45 and 10:50 two times a day. At 11:55 there is no overlap because the hour

hand is on its way to 12. So, the answer is 22 times. Question: You are the captain of a pirate

ship and onboard you have treasure worth a small fortune. The problem is, if you don’t share this

treasure between the rest of the guys on the ship in a way that they are happy with they

will kill you. You also want the very best deal for yourself. How do you share the treasure? Answer: You give 51 percent of the treasure

to the other pirates and keep 49 percent for yourself is the answer Google was looking

for. Apparently, this will keep them off your back. Shiver me timbers, wasn’t that one easy? Question: How many piano tuners are there

in the entire world? Answer: Hmm, how would you possibly know the

answer to this? Apparently, Google isn’t thinking for a

moment you could get the right number. Instead, we are told that you are supposed

to say however many the market demands. The way someone worked it out is that you

should add up the hours it takes someone to tune a piano and how many times a piano needs

to be tuned. So, if it takes an hour to do the tuning and

the average tuner worked for 8 hours five days a week he or she could tune 40 pianos

a week at most. Your answer would then be one tuner for every

40 pianos. Now make a guess at how many pianos there

are. These are called Fermi problems, which basically

means making intelligent guesses. All Google wants to know is that you can make

an intelligent estimate based on fairly reasonable assumptions. Question: Take a country where every family

continues to have children until they have a boy. If they have a girl, they have another child. If they have a boy, they stop. What is the proportion of boys to girls in

the country? Answer: Ok, so there are people arguing about

this on mathematics forums and we won’t pretend to know better than them. The Google answer is apparently 50-50 of boys

and girls. Some people have drawn up long and complicated

equations and disagree. One person writes it’s 50-50 because it

follows the same law of averages as tossing coins. He writes, “Think of it as coin tosses:

As the resulting distribution is completely independent of the stopping time the proportion

will in the limit always converge to the original distribution which is supposed to be 50-50.” We will just agree with that person, but if

anyone has a different answer please tell us in the comments below. Question: Now to something a little less taxing

on the brain, but it shows you can think outside of the box if you get it right. The question is simply this. A man pushes his car to a hotel and lost his

fortune. What happened? Answer: Did you get it? You see, this scenario happened when the person

was playing Monopoly. He moved his car (board piece) to a hotel

and landed on perhaps Boardwalk, or for Brits, Mayfair. He lost all his cash for that unlucky roll

of the dice. Question: Back to math. You have eight golf balls. Seven of them are exactly the same weight

but one of those dimpled spheres weighs a bit more than the others. How would you find which ball weighed more

if you had a balance but could only perform two weighing’s? Answer: First take 6 six balls and put three

on each side of the scale. If one side doesn’t weight more and the

scale is exactly equal, you know that one of the two balls you have left is the imposter

heavyweight. Just weigh them now. But, if the heavy ball is part of the three

balls on each side of the scale you will now know it’s one of three. Now pick two balls from those three and put

them on each side of the scale. If one ball weighs more you will see, but

if both balls weigh the same you will know that it’s the ball you didn’t put on the

scale. Question: You are shrunk to the size of a

nickel. and your mass is proportionally reduced so as to maintain your original density. You are then thrown into an empty glass blender. The blades will start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do? Answer: Ok, so Google is being a bit annoying

here. You see, it would seem that there’s no scientific

way you could figure out your survival. Google wants to see how creative you’d get,

thinking on your little feet. What would you do? Google thinks the best thing would be to try

and break the motor. Question: There are four of you and you all

need to cross a very rickety bridge in the dark. The thing is, this old bridge is dangerous,

and you can’t get across without taking a flashlight. The bridge can only support two people at

one time and you only have one flashlight. To add to the problem all of you move at different

speeds. The four of you move across the bridge at

1 minute, 2 minutes, 7 minutes and 10 minutes. How do you get them across the bridge in the

least amount of time. Answer: The one minute and two-minute people

go across together, but then two comes back with the torch. The seven and ten-minute people go next and

then one comes back with the torch. Then one and two go across again. You are all across and it took

just 17 minutes. So, how many of these did you get correct? Would you have passed the interview? Let us know in the comments section below. Also, be sure to watch our other video called

Interesting questions, right? What's your score?

To answer the question about the children ratio of boys to girls. I don’t know the answer but I don’t understand why it’s such a huge problem to find out the answer with computer models. This can easily be tested. Just have a certain amount of units equivalent to a society. Give those units the ability to produce 1 of 2 units at the average ratio that a women gives birth to a boy or girl. Then add in the rule so that once the unit produces the variable that represents the boy child it stops producing. And since it’s a compute model results can be instant. Again I don’t know the answer to the question but know for sure someone has the program to this.

Who else not getting a job at Google

Ugh……….

I got all correct

All of the question asked in the video…I answered "Yes" 🙂

Hope I get hired by google

ok 8:05 ans >>

the 10 min guy goes on holding the flash light as he is slow while he moves others can cross the brifge in total of 10 min all move

The baby question would be correct at 50-50 if you are taking that the original distribution was 50-50 and that we can say that it lands exactly at 50-50 witch you can't confirm so it's impossible

If these are questions in an interview i would not work for them as these are trick questions and due to bhat you would be working with snakes

I got 7 right

At least I got the 50-50 right. Lol

Hey Infographics

It's actually 50.1%

Use google to pass the test to get a job at google

I can just bring my wife to the interview she knows everything

The pirate and the bridge riddle is from Ted ed

No, the countyies ♧♧♧ is 30-70

Idk about u guys but I felt like maybe u needed to have low lv autism to make that connection with the car /monopoly

I wouldn't

I got 4 of these

Ok the clock thing has to be wrong. I mean at 6.30 the minute hand is at 6 and the hour hand is between 6 and 7, right?

Yeh, I don't Think I passed the Interview, I prefer the Simplified way

just answer to everything: i like money

so now are we google ready?

Someone passes the meme questions: 💁 <- someone

Everybody: carefully he's/she's a hero

am i applying for a job at google or jeopardy for gods sake, most BS video I've ever seen.

99.999999999999999999999999999999999 * oo G to 0.0000000000000000000000000000 * oo B

So… if I am planning to work at google I shoukd first learn all countries of africa, know how many kangaroos live in australia and be able to solve a 4×4 rubiks cube in under 5 minutes….

What if u work for fortnite?

Me: ooo i can play and cheak up updates

Brian:free playing

Of course you could how do others get in lol

3:02 Sharing fortune with pirates, I strongly believe that those pirates are dumb in mathematics to agree with 51% for 3 people and 49% for one captain. It should be 25% for each people. Google is greedy

I would try it but California is so expensive that it wouldn't be enough.

Hey man … i just wanna clean your toilets and windows.

My brain hurts

Google doesn't seem to understand pirates too well!

If the 10min guy stands behind he can light up the bridge, 1 and 2 go together then 7 and 10, thus 12 mins total!

The first one was pretty easy

I'll just google stuff and not work there..

My brothers dads cousin works for google and lives in San Francisco and when he walked in ig the guy that was interviewing him literally asked him “how much money you make” lemme just say homie living comfortable

Google , are u interested in hiring a paramedic ?

2:40 Those times are not the times the clock hands overlap…those are only crude approximations…in fact the accuracy of those approximations is worse for later times within am or pm…the last overlap is closer to 10:55 pm for instance

I got three right

I’m about to ace the Google interview ahaha HELLO

I was going to say 1:2 for the boy girl question

Bye bye google..

1 right

I did not understand the man whole question

No wondet

The thing about the clock is incorrect. The hands don' overlap at these times. When it is 6:30, for example, the small hand will have moved throughout half of its distance to 7, so the big and the small one will overlap at about 6:40

I made the first and last question correct 😎.

And I believe that some of the answers were a bit quirky.😕

Well… it didn't take me long to get the Golfball Question… and it was the only one I got xD

Whoever pushes a piece instead of picking it up needs to be arrested

I wouldn't pass. I have traditional family values.

How do i get a job on google

5:30 If in all families must to be a 1 boy and for boy it 50-50 and in family on average 1.5 kids (1 boy and 0.5 girl). So it must to be 66.6% boys- 33.3% girls. for every boy has half a girl! Or for every girl has a 2 boys!

Not hired lol

The last one is very popular and I got that right away

Are you a woman or a minority? Congratulations you’re in!

are you a liberal is the first question

The answer to all those questions is: "Wait…i was in a blender and now im saving the world?? WHat??"

@6:23 That apostrophe. Very annoying!

Problem is my enemy is watching this

2am how’d I get here.

Sounds like a job for Batman!

Alternate answers

1 EMAIL ME

2 i couldnt think of an alternate

8:)3 I found a similar riddle at ted-ed

Googling->source code->ctrl a->ctrl c->ctrl vI can get a job there.

My answer was that it was easier to make xD

I think it's easier just to code than answering these questions.

me: 'stares blankly'

Google Manager: 'hits fists on table' talk girl!

Me: let me save you the time , i flunked, z- flunk! ' walks out sadly'

me : 'thinks' they have motor minds at google, respect!

google manager: 'thinks' we got motor minds , hah not so easy to get in GURLLLLL!

Question 1: Do you like Donald Trump?

– Yes.

This concludes our interview.

– No.

Welcome Aboard!

You:

Work hard all life in a technical field and finally get job interview call from googleGoogle: "Ok why manholes round?"

are these real questions that Google interviewer will ask?

or just learn to code

won't it work in 10 minutes if the 10 minute guy held the flashlight while crossing and the other three went one after the other.

4:50 u just need to do the punett squarr

If this test is multiple choice I’m getting that google job!!!! FACTS

I got fullmarks because I watched the whole video so now I know all the answers so I can answer all of Google's questions

To be a google employee the only prerequisite needed is to be a blind leftist follower…

The one with the guy that pushes his car to the hotel and loses all his money, and you the question is how did he go broke?? I totally said " the hotel was also a casino" 😏🤣

Google doesn’t ask those kind of questions anymore!! That was back in 2014! Don’t mislead people!!! Dislike!

The answer to the clock question should be 23 as they’d cross eachother at 12 noon

I couldn’t even understand the first question I guess I need even need to think about working with at google

🤔

This is totally demotivating video for programmers

Who else feels dumb?

1. text me beech.

All of these came from teded riddles. Do better google

So what your telling me is I can’t work at google?

This is a promotional video, what a trash!

Don't worry guys anything of these are not exist in the interview section….they are just scaring you cause these are losers and jealous

Google final question:why most of dropouts became successful?

what video is this?

Dont worry ill google it

I would have written my email address. Since the guy knew me, he would have known my phone number by my email address, and called me. If he didn't know it he could reach me through email (it didn't say I couldn't disclose ANY info through other means). If google wants smart people, they can't tightly enclose choices in a box and limit them. That is why I scored lower on IQ tests at times when I was a kid. I came to a different result than the canned responses by using pure logic, mathematical reasoning and imagination UNTIL I figured out *the way they wanted questions answered*. That is why I was on the dean's list in college. Take that, Mr. Schoon the Goon! (Teacher I loathed)

I would have said there are no piano tuners IN the world, they would all be on it.

I would say that it depends. If the first one was the undesired gender and the next was the one you want, 50-50, otherwise might never be the one you want and the proportion could be infinity to 0! Case in point. A village (I believe it was in Poland) has had NO boys in TEN YEARS. PERIOD! Conversely, the first one might be the desired gender, therefore the process stops.

I said "The hotel was also a Casino! He went in to rest and gambled away his dough."

Well… keep reading the reviews on glassdoor, because there are plenty of reviews saying Google is a terrible place to work. For example, Google will typically take people on as a contractor for 6 months,m before deciding whether or not to make you an employee, so they can easily sack you instantly if they don’t like you. Additionally, they typically want you in the office for incredibly long working days, providing meals, childcare, etc,

to reduce the number of excuses you have for leaving.

As for the questions in this video… they are a tiny part of the interview process. You will need to visit the (local) Google office for a full day, where you will have multiple interviews. If going for a tech job, you’ll be made to design an app on a whiteboard in front of a panel of around 10-12 people. E.g. they’ll ask you to write the (pseudo) code for an app that solves a Rubin’s cube.

For the last one I’m thinking you send the 10 min with the flashlight and the one minute goes first across, when the one minute gets across the two minute goes and makes it across then the 7 minute goes and he and the 10 minute will make it across at the same time

“Ight imma head out”
