Help! Help! Math Help!

Dear Fellow Brilliant Members and Awesome staff, I would like to ask you all as to how to improve my mathematics skills especially in the topics Algebra, Geometry and Advanced Combinatorics. I am very weak at solving equations and also finding the maxima and minima using algebra. Rather, I would say I am not familiar with them( many level 4 problems are based on these). Brilliant Technique trainer unfortunately doesnt have good material for the above mentioned topics. When it comes to geometry, I am hopeless at proofs and would like to work on them. Combinatorics also is something where I lack a good base in. I would like to know about some resources for the above topics and also methods on how to improve on them and become like most of the Brilliant prodigies here! Thanks.

  • Hi! I've seen that you're solving quite a lot of decent rated number theory problems. Though I may be a level 5 in it, I still fuss around with many parts of it. I would like it if you could tell me about the way you study math, resources, etc..not just limited to number theory. BTW, I've followed you back :) @Isaac Jiménez

@Krishna Ar Well , I search on the internet and in books diferent mathematics topics ( mainly number theory, because I like NT a lot). Usually, when I see a difficult problem of brilliant and I can´t solve it,I study on internet topics or solutions (mainly solutions) of similar problems. But to answer these problems I need to practice a lot.

I study on some books of the OMM (Olimpiada Méxicana de Matemáticas), with old IMO exams and some notes on brilliant(the ones I have read are of @Calvin Lin and @Mursalin Habib ) . Also with some problems of the OMM, I posted two problems which appeared in this olympiad. Isaac Jiménez · 2 years, 4 months ago
