Happy New Year!

Thank you Brilliant, for a fabulous year.

Ever since I joined Brilliant.org in February 2013, it has been a great experience. I met a lot of other nice people who share the same common interest of math. It all seemed like fun and games, but I realized that I actually learned a lot from this site. My problem solving skills clearly increased. For that I am already thankful.

Now, with the new update, I have been more active than ever. Not only can I solve as many problems as I'd like, I can submit my own problems at will, and hopefully get them reshared by Best of __ to show them to the rest of the world. Recently, I joined #CosinesGroup, because it seemed like a pretty cool thing to do. Now I am thoroughly enjoying it, not only because I gain followers, but the feeling of sharing your ideas with other people out there is overwhelmingly awesome. I recommend anyone who also loves to help people to join #CosinesGroup.

Thank you Brilliant Staff for enduring through the many hardships of running this site. It has improved a lot since I first joined, and I still believe that there is more to improve, but I do think that you are heading the right way.

Happy New Year,

Daniel

To end this, here is a cute little mathematical joke I found on social media:

$w -\ln{|ap^2H+e^{ar}|}=\ln{|y|}-\ln{|N|}$

$w=\ln{|ap^2H+e^{ar}|}+\ln{\left|\dfrac{y}{N}\right|}$

$w=\ln{|(ap^2H+e^{ar})\cdot\dfrac{y}{N}| }$

$e^w=(ap^2H+e^{ar})\cdot \dfrac{y}{N}$

$e^w\cdot N=(ap^2H+e^{ar})\cdot y$

$e^w\cdot N=ap^2Hy+e^{ar}y$

$ap^2Hy=e^wN-e^{ar}y$

$\boxed{Happy=Ne^w-ye^{ar}}$

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.

What is this the expression for,if real?

- 6 years, 1 month ago

wow ... this is really amazing mathematical expression >> and its true ♥

- 6 years, 1 month ago

wow!!! its interesting!!! happy new year to all!!!!!

- 6 years, 1 month ago

This is awesome, well done :)

- 6 years, 1 month ago

why u are saying its a joke?

- 6 years, 1 month ago

Because it isn't a purposeful mathematical expression, it exists for laughs.

- 6 years, 1 month ago

is it a real mathematical expression then???

- 6 years, 1 month ago

Yes, I think it is.
