July Newsletter

Warm greetings from the moderators, ladies and gentlemen of Brilliant. Here's the July edition of the newsletter, and we hope you'll enjoy reading this.

P.S. Light your fireworks, Americans! Feel the freedom!

New Features To Be Excited About

  • Our Logic section is continuously growing, and more Level 4-5 Logic problems are being posted, thanks to Pi Han Goh, Nihar Mahajan, Satyen Nabar, Vignesh Raut, Agnishom Chattopadhyay and many more!

  • The Brilliant homepage was re-designed to have the new "Problems of the Day." If you have any feedback, please take a look and comment at Sir Lin's note.

  • You can now effortlessly link a wiki page to your problem or note!

  • The iOS app has been released in mid-June, so all you Apple fans can now solve Brilliant problems in bed!

  • Also, you can find recently posted top solutions on problems. If you're into looking some inspiration on how a very good solution must be written, try to take a peek on it by going to the homepage.

Challenging Problems

With the thousands of problems being posted on Brilliant each month, the challenging ones prove what you can really do. How large can you make it?, Are you, like, a crazy person?, Calvin hates his Homework, and Moo are just some of the problems that trains our brains.

There are easy problems with a tiny twist. Mind your C's and D's, You're not a cat, stop playing with strings, and Loves comparing! are some problems that you need to read twice, lest being deceived by their words.

New and Active Members

As time goes on, more and more people join the community, and a few of them are very active in contributing to the community by posting problems, solutions, wikis, notes, and pretty much everything else to the point that we should honor them as hardworking members. Let's give a round of applause to Majed Musleh, Galen Buhain, Arulx Z, Alex Li, Siddharth Bhatnagar, and Robin Plantey.

  • As Brilliant continuously features our fellow members, the second part features Daniel Liu. You can learn some interesting facts about him, you know!

  • If you're looking for something that will make you brainstorm for a while, try this. Make sure to put an answer and an explanation!

  • A survey about your favorite mathematician is shared in this community. If you still haven't taken that survey yet, answer it here!

  • If you want to enjoy your time playing chess with other people online, or a really avid fan of chess, you're invited! See here for more details.

  • Our fellow member Agnishom has created a tool that can give you laughter or tears of joy... Try it out, and you'll find it fascinating.

So, I guess this ends this month's newsletter. Stay tuned for the next one!

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.

There is a problem on brilliant because recently I posted 6-7 questions but they did not get rating. Moreover very few people now about my problems. Please help and sort out the problem. One of the problem named bashing....telescopebashing ....telescope I posted recently but still waiting for rating.

I see that most of your problems are already being rated. However, not all of them have gained enough interest from people for us to be confident about what the rating is, which is why we haven't released it officially.

You can refer to this note for tips on how to improve your problems. In particular, I've noticed that in some of your problems, you made every single equation as it's own line. This makes the problem appear really long and spread out, which makes it harder to engage with. Please use the newline latex only when you want the equation to start on a new line, and that will greatly improve the readability of your problems.

Still many questions are unrated. Like 'but still it's unknown', 'back to summation''bashing telescope', 'f(x)=2^{x}'.

Is that problem inspired by my this Bashing Telescope question?
