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.

Had you or Siddharth stayed, Hamza would've never made it to the top three.

- 8 months, 3 weeks ago

Neither would Jeffy boy @Yajat Shamji - provided Siddharth actively posted solutions

- 8 months, 3 weeks ago

Well, Jeff would've have made third maybe, if Siddharth stayed.

- 8 months, 3 weeks ago

I can't help but chuckle...

I am third! Impossible! I barely even tried...

- 8 months, 3 weeks ago

Well, Percy: $111$ and Siddharth: $43$ left.

Also, Gu Yuchen and Feng Li: $0$ was removed because they didn't participate.

Now, as promised, the prizes:

All three of you will post a problem for me to attempt and shape one of my problems.

@David Vreken, are you still there?

- 8 months, 3 weeks ago

...It hasn't been 4 months since the last one ended...@Yajat Shamji...are you for real?

- 5 months ago

You don't have to join! Your sleep is more important, remember?...

- 5 months ago

Gosh, is that why you mentioned me...in the comment where you invite people to ask them if you want a second contest. Anyway, since you asked, my answer is...sure. I'm totally in for a Brilliathon 2, as long as I can get in with the time zone prblm.

Edit : I have read the note, and the 18 hour idea that Frisk gave is a good one. I would like to join :)

...in what other way could he have meant it while mentioning you?

- 4 months, 4 weeks ago

Am I the only sentient being with common sense in this universe...Why else would you mention someone in a comment where you ask something, other than if you want them to answer?!? He mentioned me, only to remind me that I don't have to join coz' I love my sleep...Jeez, people are so oblivious sometimes...
