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.

- 1 week, 4 days ago

If I press the button and type the answer, then on pressing enter the Submit button becomes grey, but it is still not submitted, because of which the time ends.

- 1 week, 4 days ago

There is some problem with the red button, it is causing time delay.

- 1 week, 4 days ago

yay thanks lol

- 1 week, 4 days ago

How is prob 7 not 1/12?

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Anyone?

- 1 week, 4 days ago

What was the problem?

- 1 week, 4 days ago

2 numbers product to a prime

- 1 week, 4 days ago

it was sum to 11, and no prime was there

- 1 week, 4 days ago

1/5 + 1/6

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Yes, 11/30

- 1 week, 4 days ago

No the one where 2 dice are given and we need probability of product being prime

- 1 week, 4 days ago

i think that was 1/6

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Yes, how?

- 1 week, 4 days ago

That was 6/36 because (1,2), (1,3), (1,5) and (5,1), (3,1), (2,1) out of 36

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Ohh got it, I counted half of them. Thanks!

- 1 week, 4 days ago

k join the new game

- 1 week, 4 days ago

yeah

- 1 week, 4 days ago

The only possibility to get a prime was 1 x prime, and there are 3 primes i.e 2,3 and 5 so either (1,prime) or (prime,1) so in total 6 possibilities out of the 36 so 1/6

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Yeah I did not considered the two dice different

- 1 week, 4 days ago

How did you get 1/12?

- 1 week, 4 days ago

I made a 15 problem game

- 1 week, 4 days ago

I need to go.

- 1 week, 4 days ago

ok bye gg

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Is the first one 2/11?

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Congrats @Percy Jackson could we play at 9 pm IST I will have my PC then bcuz answering from phone is a bit messy

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Also why on earth is the red button for? Couldn't there be just a blank where we could type and submit our answers instead of opening a timed red buzzer.

- 1 week, 4 days ago

true lol

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Ikr sometimes I can’t type in time if I mistype

- 1 week, 4 days ago

thanks, i won't be free that time tho, u can ask the others

- 1 week, 4 days ago

What time will u be free?

- 1 week, 4 days ago

that will be tomorrow for u

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Less time, maybe 75 seconds was good

- 1 week, 4 days ago

I hate that weird red button

- 1 week, 4 days ago

dammit i gave fraction not percent lol

- 1 week, 4 days ago

I submitted answers for the previous two and none even got submitted

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Three now :((((h(((((((h(((n(((((h((h((((h

- 1 week, 4 days ago

That's samd

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Oooooof very close!!

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Well played, I still don't understand how you got 237.5

- 1 week, 4 days ago

I did $\left(\dfrac{3}{2}\right)^3-1$

- 1 week, 4 days ago

I missed minus one

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Ohh same

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Yayy wp!!!

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Well played @Mahdi Raza and @Jason Gomez! GG

- 1 week, 4 days ago

GG Humans, but the score is still 2-1! Congo @Vinayak Srivastava

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Thanks! And you already said its individual lol

- 1 week, 4 days ago

ok, then my score is 2 lol

- 1 week, 4 days ago

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Yeah out of the world lol

- 1 week, 4 days ago

It’s easy actually take 6=5+1

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Brilliant!

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Then in three throws 15-18 is possible 19 is not possible but in 4 throws 20-24 is possible 5 throws 25-30 is possible

- 1 week, 4 days ago

What 😂

- 1 week, 4 days ago

See his explanation the largest would be till 5x3 + 1x3 so 19 can’t be made

- 1 week, 4 days ago
