Honest question, what is the purpose of these interview questions?
To test if you can come up with an ancient solution that probably took some time to figure out.

Or to test if you can memorize an algorithm that you've seen on the internet that you know it's typical interview question and vomit it during the interview?

I am sorry but I don't get why people make "puzzle" questions like fizzbuzz and whatever, oh and they don't let you use internet... Because when you code you never use internet

Well anyway, thanks for your explanation
