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.

You know one thing, I have a very unusual periods of mathematics in my life. From class LKG to 4 I topped in mathematics. But in class 5, this topper scored only 67% in mathematics. It was this man who inspired me. In class 6 , I got 90%, In class 7, 95%, and this year in class 8( I got my results yesterday), I scored 100%. Many of my friends go to coaching classes and learn many new concepts which I am unaware of, but from him, I do learn that : "Knowledge is Limited, but imagination encircles the world." Now I'm called a Physicist in my class!

That's good Swapnil Das .
And my inspiration is $\text{Stephen Hawkings}$.

He is a epitome for all physicists in the world .

It shows that despite being disabled , you can be the greatest Physicist of your time !!!
