Here is what is going on:

Some of the problems in the practice section are automatically generated from canonical types within that topic. In a previous set you had solved one that was essentially the same problem with different numbers, for extra practice. Our naive "solved by" box therefore tells you that you have already solved it.

Did you fix it? · 4 years, 1 month ago

Evidently not because it just happened to me again - except cross-technique. Presumably because it was a duplicate problem (literally word for word duplicate). · 4 years, 1 month ago

and again, with another canonical type. · 4 years, 1 month ago

hmmmm....interesting. We will look into it. Thanks. Staff · 4 years, 1 month ago

This happened to me as well, just this week. The additional points didn't get counted though, so I thought it was just because of poor Internet connection. I didn't bother taking a screenshot or reporting the glitch, but if it keeps happening to different people... · 4 years, 1 month ago

I had the same thing happen to me. · 4 years, 1 month ago

Is this the first or second question of the problem set? · 4 years, 1 month ago

the second · 4 years, 1 month ago

so what makes you think the system thinks you have solved it? · 4 years, 1 month ago
