(Comment: again, I want to emphasize that you do not need to know the answer to every question posted on this blog — I simply try to post a wide variety of topics so every reader finds something he or she feels worthy of working on. Even though these are real interview questions, if the interviewer doesn’t think you know a certain subject, such as bootstrap methods, they won’t ask you about it.)
