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.

You guys will get a problem where you are the main character

choose a theme or color and I'll make it :)

If it is okay for you, I'd like the colour purple. The subject of the problem does not matter and gender: male.

Wow, I'm honoured! Thanks so much!

Subject of the problem: Inequalities. Colour: Red is good. Gender: Male.

You can also choose the subject of the problems, except quantitative finance, i don't know a heck about it

Also, as I don't want to assume genders in my problems, please tell me your gender, as it would be awkward if Jeff was a girl and i called Jeff a boy in the problem :) LOL
