Hi Guys,

Here is the question.......

James ordered a fishing rod, priced at $3.56. Unfortunately, James is an Eskimo who lives in a very remote part of Greenland and the import rules there forbid any package longer than 4 feet to be imported. The fishing rod was 4 feet and 1 inch, just a little too long, so how can the fishing rod be mailed to James without breaking the rules? Ideally James would like the fishing rod to arrive in one piece!



Try to solve this guys (it will help in many interviews!!) Rolling Eyes Waiting for the solution.......

No problem boss..

While mailing the rod, keep it diagonally in a box and mail it.. In the sense, box height is 4 feet, consider its breath to be 2 feet (a rectangular box). Now, the diagonal size is more than 4 feet. Horreee.. Problem over.
