# Dagger-ed Problems

Now we can also rate our problem difficulty with daggers like in the Daily Problems.

$\text{\Large Sharper Than Most - } \Huge \color{grey} \dagger \dagger \dagger$

We can color them and change their sizes too, all using $\LaTeX$ :)

\dagger is the command to make a dagger, but it appears small, so use \Huge to make it bigger.

Color command works on the dagger, so using \color{<colorname>} \dagger will color your dagger with any color.

Use text before the dagger to write "Sharper than most" and all that stuff. Make your text and dagger to appropriate size, I suggest using \Large for the text and \Huge for the dagger, but its your choice :)

\dagger doesn't work inside the \text{} so be careful.

Post any queries that you have in the comments.

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.

@Percy Jackson and @Páll Márton, what made you to type \dagger in $\LaTeX$?

Found it on a $\LaTeX \ Wikibook$

Yes, I am reading the superior rap that you made in yesterday's daily challenge...

@Percy Jackson, I feel bored...

- 3 months ago

I win, admit it. That one rap roasted all of you LOL

- 3 months ago

@Percy Jackson bro, I posted that rap to make everyone calm down. Didn't you read it? It said to make today's solution with both rap and text, making it easy and fun to read

The rap wasn't offensive to me, but I said you this so that you can understand what I mean to say...

- 3 months ago

I can't let the ending rap be peaceful, now can I? I saw it, but it started with 'God, all your raps suck', so I posted a reply to all raps, in one giant heck of a rap/roast LOL

- 3 months ago

Ah, yes

I wanted to say you this

As soon as Frisk possessed me and changed my account, my sister is mentally killing me...

By asking questions like, "Are you serious?", "You know you can't change your name for a year?", and "Will people suffer a stroke when looking at your profile now?"

I have to say, things have gotten better now, ever since Kris returned from the closet

Frisk is in my body, and they have learnt to control themselves

- 3 months ago

Yeah. My name is Márton :) BTW I found how to write this: \(<code>\).You should write: \\(\)(code\\) I used more backslashes and brackets to write how to write it(LOL). Anyway I guess if you put the daggers into a title-1, then it will be brighter and bigger(with normal fontsize and without coloring):

# $\dagger$

There is a little gap between the first and second daggers

@Percy Jackson, I have corrected it, and made it cooler

I used \LARGE instead of \Huge for the daggers

\large for the text

how did you make the daggers fat @Páll Márton, I know you didn't feed them monster meat, so just tell me the proper answer, what latex did you use ????

Not a movie joke, but nevermind, thanks for boldsymbol :)

- 2 months, 4 weeks ago

To put your dagger inside a colorbox, you can't use the dagger command, instead you'll have to make a dagger first $\dagger$ then copy it, and paste it in the colorbox text space

\colorbox{blue}{\color{white}This is a copy/pasted dagger - †}

Looks like this -

# $\colorbox{#3D99F6}{\color{#FFFFFF}This is a copy/pasted dagger - †}$

Márton, you know that you have to add the \ ( ... \ ), right?

Yeah. What is the problem?

You made it into a quote @Páll Márton

- 2 months, 4 weeks ago

And I think you have to make everything one line, without any enters

- 2 months, 4 weeks ago

Marton's code is correct Hamza, but he put it in quote, so its not working, but i don't know why (?_?)

- 2 months, 4 weeks ago

I just copy/pasted it. Here is the original code from the comment:

\( \begin{aligned}\large\text{Tis' but a Scratch }&\LARGE\color{lightpink}\dagger\color{lightgrey}\dagger\dagger\dagger \dagger \ \color{#333333} \large\text{Small, but Pointy}&\LARGE\color{#E81990}\dagger\dagger\color{lightgrey}\dagger\dagger \dagger \ \color{#333333}\large\text{Sharper than Most}&\LARGE\color{#D61F06}\dagger\dagger\dagger\color{lightgrey}\dagger \dagger \ \color{#333333}\large\text{Seriously Serrated}&\LARGE\color{#69047E}\dagger\dagger\dagger\dagger\color{lightgrey} \dagger \ \color{#333333}\large\text{Honed to a Razor-Edge }&\LARGE\color{gold}\colorbox{#333333}{†††††} \end{aligned}\)

- 2 months, 4 weeks ago

Ok, I identified the problems @Páll Márton, two things...

Instead of \aligned, replace it with \eqnarray

Before every \color{black} in my code, there should be a /, make it a //
