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.

Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Wow great site (I'm only telling about the FB version since the website does only "Bash or no bash") ! Another bash from you guys! But please say me what does the website intends to do with that question only?

A little backstory here, Cody and I were discussing names for math websites and he liked his idea of nobash.com so much he bought it himself and made what you see now.

Ohhh... What time do you sleep???!!! I sleep at midnight at the latest! Unless it's a weekend, in which case the time was understandable.

Digging in shows that there is an olympiad class here, beneath the surface. How do I access those pages?

But I like to bash. I've told that I look like part Neanderthal.

What is bashing?

Log in to reply

Using non-elegant techniques in problems, like coordinates in geometry.

It is a method that allows you to solve any problem no matter how long it takes.

Now all I can think is "Oh no. What have I done?"

This is all your fault.

:P
