    It is very common, if not expected, to be asked technically challenging questions during an engineering interview. It is not expected for them to get it right immediately, but rather to show their thought process and problem solving ability. This is especially true with recent graduates who have little job experience to discuss. Also, I would let them struggle for a bit and then guide them in the right direction.

    Personally, I always wanted to recommend the candidate who enjoyed the challenge, whether or not they were able to answer the question right away.
    You're still a pri....for busting their chops that way.

    OK, what I just said was totally wrong. I tried to draw it out. The centerpoint can be determined by dividing the angle of each corner in half and drawing a line to the center.
