# Featured solution...How do they work?

I have seen that some of the solutions submitted by the users get featured and posted up by Wednesday. How does this exactly take place? Do the staff members ask the selected users who have solved the problem to send their solutions or the users mail their solution to someone that I am not aware of?

Over the course of a week, those who answer a question correctly are randomly selected to submit a full worked solution. These are evaluated over the course of the week and the ones that the Challenge Masters like the most will be featured the following Wednesday. You have to enter the right numerical answer, then you have to be lucky, and then you have to write a nice solution in order to have your solution featured:)
