Nothing can stop you, but all of the math problems are created so that they can be solved without any electronic aide. The physics problems do however usually require a calculator for computation. Using such devices often takes the problem solving experience away from the problem, so I would advise against it.

i advise you use python 2.7 code interpreter, most of the problems in brilliant can be solve using simple search algorithm.. also Note we our answers ranges only from 0 to 999..
