Mathematical Strategies of Famous Brilliantians

@Pi Han Goh @Mursalin Habib Hi Pi and Mursalin! I am a great fan of the problems you post. They are just great! Would you like to share about your strategies and methods that make you a math genius? Thanks!

Hi Swapnil! Thanks for the compliment!

I'm no genius but my "overall" strategy is:

1) To know why I want to be good in it.

2) Restrict yourself to more constraints than the original problem provided.

3) Ask yourself "is there any other approach to this?" even if you already got the answer.

4) Try spotting a pattern in every problem you do.

5) Create problems on your own after solving the problem, and obviously make them harder. For example, if the original question asked you to find the smallest number, ask yourself to find the second smallest number (or likewise). Pi Han Goh · 2 years, 1 month ago
