engineering interview questions shared by candidates
If mike travels 1.7 miles and joe travels 1.8 miles and then sally travels twice their distances combined divided by two then how many meters did sally travel ?
That I was being interviewed in a country that uses the metric system and guessed a multiple choice answer.
Not sure why the imperial system tripped you up if that was the question as if they used 1.7 km and 1.8 km respectively the actual number as an answer is the same.... it's just a maths question... unless they asked you to memorise the conversion from miles to km.
I assume you have not noticed that they begin the question using miles and then ask for an answer in meters, so yes you had to know how to convert from miles to meters.
