KerwoodDerby: ChubbyTiger: Like everyone else, incredibly simple except for the logs, which I haven't seen in 20+ yrs. I have to wonder why they would care about logs.They're not looking for people who can manipulate logarithms, they're looking for people who can think in "log-space", comprehending the idea of multiplicative distance rather than simple linear distance. Most of physics and engineering assumes mastery of log-space as a base-level expectation for participation.
Mayhem of the Black Underclass: FTFA:Williams F1 struggling to find recruits with maths skillsMaybe they should find someone who understands the Englishs to write the test?/i know i know, but it sounds so wrong.
Ambitwistor: Abner Doon: So the first one, log 40 is cake because thats log (4*10) = log 4 (which is given) + log 10. Since it's log base 10, log 10 = 1.That one initially stumped me because I over-thought it. I didn't assume the base was known.
russlar: as a follower of F1, the problems at williams are much bigger than maths.
StopLurkListen: So, if one can just do basic math one can get a job with McLaren?In THIS country, students get in over their head in debt for a good four-year college degree, and *might* be lucky enough to get a callback *someday* from a company which may or may not be related to one's field of education, but most likely will be unemployed & living at home with parents?WHAT.

redTiburon: they can't spell "math" either.
Benevolent Misanthrope: kmmontandon: Benevolent Misanthrope: God, I feel like an idiot - I got all of them except the ones that called for 11pc and 12.5pc. Can't for the life of me remember what that pc means.... seriously?Percent.Seriously. It never occurred to me. I can do calculus in my head but can't read a basic arithmetic problem.Yeah, I know, I suck.
