# lifetime points and level of courses

How can someone increase his lifetime points and his level course astronomically which enable him to be in the leader board (among the top 20) and also enable him to answer to the perfect,Olympiad and difficult questions . I wish anyone can answer me and thanks in advance :D

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 exists no algorithm to guarantee position in the Top 20 Leaderboard if there are more than 20 people vying for a spot.

Proof by contradiction: If there existed a certain set procedure that you could follow to guarantee a position in the Top 20 Leaderboard, and at least 21 people followed this procedure, then the procedure would not work for at least one of those people, and therefore it would not guarantee a position on the Top 20 Leaderboard (that is, unless the Leaderboard admits ties, in which case everyone would be tied for #1, which would be pretty funny.)

If two users solved the same number of problems in a particular week, then the user with the most lifetime points 'wins'.

On a more serious note, you could probably check out some of the books mentioned in this post.

I mean .. how can i increase my life points to guarantee that i am among the top 20 in the leader board and what can i do to solve the difficult problems in the weekly challenge and the olympiad problems

As far as I know, you manage to be in the leaderboards when you get many points in a short time, through the questions of the weekly problem set.

*It would be more helpful if you let your question more clear.

I think the only way to stay in the leaderboard of a certain category is doing its problem set. However, I have to tell you that I don't know the leaderboards system of classification.

-Solve problems quickly to get on the leaderboard early -Work hard on the hard problems and study up on the topic You can't immediately receive points unless you solve a weekly problem; you used to be able to write solutions for points and you can still submit problems for points but that is not instantaneous.
