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.

Oh, thank you for the offer, but I don't need anything special. Nevertheless thank you for organising the contest. Otherwise I wouldn't have learned how to program in Python. ;)

@A Former Brilliant Member Ugh... I literally forgot posting the solutions for 4,5,6 and 7. Why didn't I do that earlier?! Nevermind, congratulations to the winners!

@Mahdi Raza Oh! Ok, I actually had a feeling you would win, because you had near perfect scores for Problems-1,2, and 3. But then I saw that you didn't post for the other problems, so I thought you were busy, with your school and stuff. Nvm, Nobody posted a solution for the 6th Problem, 50 points lost LOL
