Amazon Online Assessment (OA) - Five Star Seller
An arborist that operates a plant store in Brooklyn, NY would like to improve their online sales by improving their ratings.
In order to become a five-star store, they must maintain a certain threshold percentage of five-star ratings. Given their current situation, find the minimum number of additional five-star ratings they must receive to meet the threshold. The overall online store percentage is calculated by taking the sum of percentages of five-star ratings for each product.
[[4,4],[1,2],[3,6]] where each entry is
[five-star reviews, total reviews]
We need the sum of the percentages of five-star ratings for each product to add up to the threshold.
The current percentage of five-star ratings for this seller is
((4/4) + (1/2) + (3/6))/3 = 66.66%
If we add a five star review to product #2, their threshold becomes
((4/4) + (2/3) + (3/6))/3 = 72.22%
If we add another five star review to product #2, their threshold becomes
((4/4) + (3/4) + (3/6))/3 = 75%
If we add a five star review to product #3, their threshold becomes
((4/4) + (3/4) + (4/7))/3 = 77.38%
At this point, the
77% threshold is met. The answer is
3, because there is no other way to add less ratings and achieve
77% or more.
There is always at least one product, and the threshold is between
99 inclusive. All values are positive.
