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.

Note: you must add a full line of space before and after lists for them to show up correctly

There also seems to be a minor problem... If I add this many images, the preview gets unnecessarily long. I suppose someone should program an upper cap on the vertical size of notes and problems?

Hey there, thanks everyone! I drew them on paper, scanned it in, and added color with photoshop. :)

If this ever becomes an issue, we will restrict the actual dimensions of the display. We'd let a few problems / notes slide through for now.
