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.

I've told all of my friends! This is going to be really fun but @Yan Yau Cheng could you go a little easy on the trig? After all, this is Junior. I just finished. :D

totally agreed, especially since I just learnt basic trig only .-.

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Haha, yeah but I'm in Algebra 1 so... sucks for me. :P

What ? I think the correct file(ques 2 problem fixed) is now uploaded on the website ..... All participants , we're sorry for that inconvenience , really!!

- 5 years, 6 months ago

I am not able to access the file. Could you please post the difference in the question?

- 5 years, 6 months ago

The 1st equation was previously xy+2x+3y=2 but it was supposed to be xy+3x+2y=2 so we've edited it now

Thank you!

Why is JOMO and Proofathon always together? Can you please colobrate time so that I can participate in both.

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Arrgghh... I cant do this, the problems arent bad but it just takes too much to convert everything to PDF 's and everything, i barely have that much time. sorry!

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Dude I finished in 40 minutes. :P

- 5 years, 6 months ago

For question 2, I can't find any non-negative integer solutions for $x$, $y$ and $z$. Did yours have any negative numbers?

- 5 years, 6 months ago

there are no problems to question 2, I double checked

- 5 years, 6 months ago

I'll check again.

- 5 years, 6 months ago

I got a non-integral answer and I'm sure it's right...

- 5 years, 6 months ago

It asked for nonnegative integers. I got two solutions for the equation but both of them had negative integers.

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Yeah I know.

- 5 years, 6 months ago

We are sorry Sharky and all others for the inconvenience but there IS a problem in question 2 .... We have edited the file and soon , the correct version will be uploaded on the website ..... Apologies for your time that it consumed unnecessarily .....

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Don't worry for that now , we'll now allow word documents .... You may submit it as microsoft office Word document too !

- 5 years, 6 months ago

I think this one is pretty easy ,, Nice job, All the best for all participants

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Really? Last weeks for me was the easiest, this one for me was moderately tough.

- 5 years, 6 months ago

I am a problem writer at JOMO but i also feel that this one is easier than previous JOMO (of course feeling easy/difficult may differ among people) .... Go on , all the best ! Progress expected this time .......

I didnt attempt any of the contest. If u are saying of the previous combinatorics contest, then I admit my worst prepared topic is combinatorics, while my strongest topic is inequalities.. But, previous contest was also easy, but I didn't get a few. As for this contest, I got all ques but one till now.. R u taking in it? all the best then

The proof problems were a bit strange. No casework, no induction, not really much of anything! :P

- 5 years, 6 months ago

I cannot find any non-negative solutions to Qn 2.Is there an issue in the problem?

- 5 years, 6 months ago

We are sorry Bogdan and all others for the inconvenience but there IS a problem in question 2 .... We have edited the file and soon , the correct version will be uploaded on the website ..... Apologies for your time that it consumed unnecessarily .....

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Happened to me as well.

- 5 years, 6 months ago

@Bogdan Simeonov @Sharky Kesa After Triple-checking, there IS a problem in question 2, we are terribly sorry and we have edited the question. @Finn Hulse You might want to resubmit for question 2 as well since you already submitted

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Oh yes I did! Thanks. :D

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Could you please tell me what the edit to the question is? I am not able to access the new file.

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Great problems and solutions in JOMO5! Looking forward to the next one.
