# Bloomberg Interview Question

*By CK On February 12, 2012 · Leave a Comment*

One of my primary schoolmates posted a Bloomberg interview question on Facebook. I found it pretty interesting so let me restate it here:

2 eggs will break if you drop them above a particular height H. You are asked to find out H to its closet integer multiple of 1ft. It is known that 1ft <= H <= 100ft; and there is a 100ft stairway that you can climb up to drop your eggs.

What is the fewest number of drops it would take to find the “breaking height” H?

I will put the solution in the comment at some point.
