This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

I believe you won't mind if I add a bit about Mursalin. Here

$\bullet$$\textit{Mursalin:}$ The current $\textbf{all-rounder}$ at Brilliant.

On the whole a good recognition of the superb attributes of these superb people.

- 6 years, 4 months ago

It's an absolute honor that you think of me that way! I'd like to add that there are a large portion of users that are better than me at both math and physics. I simply share things that I love, learn from others, help others learn and join interesting conversations on this wonderful site. If that makes me an 'all-rounder', I'm glad to be one :)

- 6 years, 4 months ago

Well you have an extra edge over them in that you share a lot of widely ranging topics here. Your healthy criticism does bring more out of a person. I wish I could meet such a blessed person in reality(we might do one day as we are not much far from each other). All-round does not imply only subject skills. @Calvin Lin what is your take ?

- 6 years, 4 months ago

Wow thanks im on here :D

Where should I get my 'ELO' rating?

- 6 years, 4 months ago

ELO ratings are obtained by playing official FIDE rated chess tournament.Details of upcoming tournaments can be found at state chess website (delhichess.com) or aicf.in

- 6 years, 4 months ago

How to register?? Is it free or paid??

- 6 years, 4 months ago

In India its about Rs.200 for the state registration and Rs.250 for AICF registration (both per yer). The fees for each individual tournament can vary from Rs. 500 to Rs. 5000. @Sharky Kesa BTW Pankaj is talking about FIDE ratings

- 6 years, 4 months ago

For us in Australia, it's about \$8 or Rs. 416~

- 6 years, 4 months ago

My rating on chess.com is 1370. I'd like to play with you. At what time in GMT will you be free tomorrow. BTW what is your username? Is it Sharky-1?

No, chessgrandmaster564.

I will be free roughly between 10:00am and 12 noon GMT.

- 6 years, 5 months ago

@Sharky Kesa I'm new to chess.com, but I think I've sent you a friend request. Can you play "now". My username is satvikgolechha, I guess.

Thank you. You won't be long, I'm sure.

@Sharky Kesa, can you help me? I don't know much about AoPS & its contents. Can you show me the way?

- 6 years, 4 months ago

AoPS is basically a math forum website. It is jam-packed with tons of info, but I mainly only play FTW! on it. FTW! Is this sort of countdown maths contest. You should make an AoPS account on it. :D

Hey I existed at that time!

- 4 years, 6 months ago
