Corrections to Problems

Whenever a correction is made to a problem, I get an e-mail that says:

The title of the problem is always missing. Can this be fixed?

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.

Yeah! I noticed the same. And also, how are you so unbelievably good at math? I am so used to seeing that fat cat in the "Previous Solvers" box that it's insane!!

Do you remember when you first started doing math (out side of school)

Not really sure. I remember I was very young at the time.

In my experience this often accompanies the problem's being taken down (or at least I can't find the problem in my feed anymore when I look for it). Maybe that's just a coincidence.
