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.

It would be easier if you asked more directed questions. Otherwise, you will get random stuff like the following:

1. My favorite color is one of red, blue, black. It changes, depending on the scenario.
2. My first trophy was first place in a Baby contest. I was an adorable chubby baby.
3. I started getting white hair since I was 15.
4. My favorite number is $\frac{3}{5}$, mostly because people are expecting an integer, or a famous constant.

Now, $\frac{3}{5}$ has got reasons to be famous

I have a question for you!!

What is the probability that one can get the chance to submit the solution to your questions before anyone else? (Including alternate solutions)

@Calvin Lin Umm, I have heard about something by Brilliant that uses a domain on Slack.com regarding instant messaging and questions. Could you please tell me on how to take up that facility...?

You can request for an invite here.
