# How do you post a solution to a problem?

How do you post a solution to a problem? I don't see a button anywhere for it. I also checked the Help page and didn't find anything.

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.

Thank you! So I guess the problem I am having then, is that in Step 3 I am not actually getting the option for adding a solution, even after correctly answering the question. Is there anything else I can do to get a solution posted?

Leave it under a comment of a solution. If we like it, we will convert it into a solution!

You can't insert images when replying though right?

I have restored your solution and added a line of "This solution is being edited".

Currently, we do not offer an easy way of uploading an image when making a comment. You could always use the markdown format of ![title](url link) to display an image.

Hi Ian,

I saw that you wrote up a solution which concluded with "Enter. I am not sure what is going on here. My guess is that it's a bug." Furthermore, you deleted this solution soon after posting it.

We allow a maximum of 1 solution to be posted per person per problem, which is why you are currently unable to post another solution.

If you would like to be un-delete your solution, please let me know. You would be able to edit your solution by clicking on the edit button at the bottom (similar to editing a comment).

I’m very sorry about this – it sounds like you’re hitting a bug in our site/app. To help us get to the bottom of this and fix it for you – please send us a screenshot or screen video of the bug happening from your device to support@brilliant.org.

As far as I can tell, you can only post a solution if you have solved that problem.

Why don't I get an option to post solutions or comment in Daily Challenges and Community problems (I get an option to comment and in a few question only I get an option to post an explanation in community)?

- 4 months ago

Hi, you're only able to post a solution if you have submitted the correct answer.

Staff - 4 months ago

Despite that, I do not get any option in daily challenges! I just get the option to comment on someone's explanation. (In community questions I am able to post explanations)

Hi Prabhat, I just checked your attempts log, you should be able to submit solutions (on your computer) to the recent daily challenges:

If you are not able to submit your solution to any of these Daily Challenges, please send us a screenshot or screen video of the bug happening from your device to support@brilliant.org.

Thanks for your assistance, I use an Android smartphone and perhaps that's why I am not able to do so.

Is there no option for FAQs on the Brilliant app for Android? I had to Google up to reach to this zone and on clicking the link, it opens in app but I dont find any such option in the app by myself. Why?

Hi Prabhat, I think the quickest way to get an answer is by contacting the support team:
