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.

lol I got no idea I never tried. whenever it's nontraditional mathematics on Brilliant I never give it a go (even though I could solve 90% of the problems if I invested the time) because it's most likely too time consuming for no good reason. Btw I liked Madara way better. now you put this stupid pikachu on lol... not hating on pokemon, but I love Madara. btw don't tell me anything from manga or episodes - I'm like 10 episodes behind.

thx and yeah if you wanna fix a typo - your own or someone else's - use the star before the word like

Alex: Your stupid

Mardokay: *you're

Oh btw if they call you Grammar Nazi ignore them - they just jelly or just trollin ;)

$6.25 unit^2$

How please explain.

similarity and dude it is not chalangeous

6.25 as 5\20=bd\10 then we can find bd = 5\2 the area = .5 × (5\2 )× 5=25\4=6.25 unite^2

CBD and CAE are similar. Therefore, BC/CA=BD/AE. Thus BD=2.5 units. Area of CBD=BC.BD/2. Answer is 6.25 unit square
