## What is the floor from which we should start from such that total number of drops in worst case is minimized?

If we use Binary Search Method to find the floor and we start from the 50’th floor, then we end up doing 50 comparisons in the worst case. The worst-case happens when the required floor is 49’th floor.

## What is the minimum no of eggs required to identify the maximum no of floors from where the eggs do not break if dropped from there?

If it doesn’t break, then we should try floor 27 (14 + 13). If it breaks, we need 12 more tries to find the solution. So the initial 2 tries plus the additional 12 tries would still be 14 tries in total. If it doesn’t break, we can try 39 (27 + 12) and so on.

**Which floor egg will not break?**

The Problem One of the floors is the highest floor an egg can be dropped from without breaking. If an egg is dropped from above that floor, it will break. If it is dropped from that floor or below, it will be completely undamaged and you can drop the egg again.

**What is the best solution to figure out the highest floor from which an egg can be dropped without breaking it?**

Simplest answer The simplest way to obtain the minimal floor is to throw an egg from the first floor, then from the second and so on. This way when the egg is finally broken then we will know that this is the floor.

### Why eggs dropped on a carpet or a mattress do not break?

Because a carpet or a mattress is soft in comparison to the floor, the egg slows down and stops more slowly, resulting in less force on the egg, which prevents the egg from breaking.

### How can you drop two eggs the fewest amount of times without them breaking?

Answers. Easy. This is done on any floor, the highest or the lowest. Simply drop the egg from one inch above your foot and it will not break.

**What is egg drop problem?**

Egg dropping refers to a class of problems in which it is important to find the correct response without exceeding a (low) number of certain failure states. In a toy example, there is a tower of n floors, and an egg dropper with m ideal eggs.

**What is the egg problem?**

The two-egg problem When you drop an egg from any floor of the building, the egg will either break, or it will survive the fall: If the egg breaks, then any greater fall would have broken it as well. If the egg survives, then it would have survived any lesser fall. Every egg is identical and totally interchangeable.

#### Does egg yolk wash out of clothes?

Washable Fabrics For stubborn stains, rub with heavy-duty liquid detergent. Launder immediately. If color stain remains, soak/wash in chlorine bleach if safe for fabric, or in oxygen bleach. For extra heavy stains, apply dry cleaning solvent to back of the stain over absorbent paper towels.

#### Why do eggs not crack in grass?

Theory has it that, given sufficient height, aerodynamics will cause the egg to align itself to land on the blunter of the two ends. The egg is remarkably strong in this orientation. As long as it falls onto a reasonably forgiving surface, a lawn maybe, it won’t break — sometimes!

**What is eggdrop puzzle?**

This is a famous puzzle problem. Suppose there is a building with n floors, if we have m eggs, then how can we find the minimum number of drops needed to find a floor from which it is safe to drop an egg without breaking it.

**What is dynamic programming in computer science?**

Dynamic Programming is a technique in computer programming that helps to efficiently solve a class of problems that have overlapping subproblems and optimal substructure property.

## Why do eggs give me diarrhea?

You might have an intolerance to the egg white, egg yolks, or both. Such an intolerance most commonly leads to gastrointestinal upset, such as abdominal bloating or diarrhea. In some cases, an intolerance can last for years, while others have trouble with eggs for life. It can also occur at any age.

## Can you solve the egg drop riddle Yossi Elran?

So, for the egg drop riddle we would start by dividing the 100 floors into two halves, throw the egg from the 50th floor and see what happens. If the egg breaks, we would know that the critical floor is between 0 and 49, if it doesn’t, the critical floor is between 50 and 100.

**What is the optimal solution for finding out the highest floor you can drop an egg from without breaking it?**
