Hi everyone,

this case basically just consists of calculating an ROI. However, some of the numbers are too difficult to calculate in your head and written math is very time-consuming. To what extent it would be ok to use estimation math with an accuracy of about 20% to solve this case on a MBB level? How realistic do you think this case is overall?

Thanks a lot for your help and best regards!

Hi there,

In general, you're allowed to ask to round! If the numbers seem a bit absurd, simply propose rounding "if that's ok" and see what the interviewer says.

That said, make sure you are comfortable with your quick math as well as long divsion/multiplication - best to be prepared!
