# Know what your guys' problem is?

You don't seem to care. As Socrates said, "Give them what you seem." You seem to be an uncaring, automated system that really doesn't stipulate 3.14 from pi in some problems, or explain anything before I refreshed my memory. I don't know if I can afford another month of Brilliant.org on my retirement benes

(silence) that is cool, thanks to be here, by-the-way personal improvement is the key, hard-work, college try, etc. How about Cliff Pickover's large Schizophrenic Fnct. I'd like to articulate my farewell in this context, and bid you 1, 5, 6, 2, 4, 9, 6, 3, 9, 2 Root 4 Peace

Hi Tony,

1. Decimal answers are evaluated to 2% degree of accuracy, so the approximation of $$\pi \approx \frac{22}{7}$$ shouldn't seriously impact the answer.
For the problems written by staff, we do our best to stick to $$\pi$$ directly, and if necessary, we will state what approximation to use.
For problems written by the community, we review the popular problems and help set some standards for them. Unfortunately, we are unable to review all of the incoming problems and standardize the terminology. If you notice any issues with these problems, you can report the problem, and we will look into it.

2. We believe in using the problems as a way to get people interested in finding out more about the underlying concepts. We provide wiki pages in the chapters that will help you explore what you need to know. Solutions to the problems written by staff will also explain one can approach and solve the problem. We review the popular community problems and ensure that they are good solutions to them, and rely on the community to review solutions to the rest.

Thanks for your response, it was not taken lightly. I am a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics '97 Wash. State University. I am clearly interested already

Great! Check out the wiki pages, especially the featured ones. It would be marvellous if you can also share what you've learnt with the community by contributing problems and wikis, thereby allowing everyone to grow alongside you!
