IF You have 5 unbreakable light bulbs and a 80 floor building. Using fewest possible drops, determine how much of an impact this type of light bulb can withstand?
Can it withstand a drop from 20th floor, but breaks from the 22th?
Implement a function to return a ratio from a double function (0.25 -> 1/4).
If the function tolerance is .01 then Find Ratio(.24, .01) -> 1/4
Three people need to cross a weak bridge at night. They have just one turn and the bridge is only strong enough to support two people at a time. Not all people take the same time to cross the bridge. Times for each person: 2 min, 5 mins and 7 mins. What is the shortest time for all three of them to cross the bridge?
