# Melodies's Message Board

hahahah Just saw so many message board notes, so I've decided to create one myself! :)

I am Melodies from Singapore. I'm 16 this year and in Grade 10. I really like Math a lot, especially Olympiad and fun Math stuff :D In particular, I like learning combinatorics and number theory! Geometry is my weakest area though... Do message me if you have any fun facts to share cos I really love fun facts!

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.

@Happy Melodies Hi melodies I am Mardokay a beginner in brilliant. May I ask you how you are so good at number theory? Also you write nice solutions.

Thank you Mardokay. Actually I'm not very good at number theory... But nonetheless, for me, I just like to spot patterns or play with numbers... so I guess that's why number theory is one of my favourite field of math.. :) For writing solutions, I think you have to have the audience in mind, as in you would want to write clear and motivated solutions for others to learn and to understand, just like how I would like to read a solution (when I don't know how to solve). :)

That's where you're wrong, 'cos I'm also from Singapore but I'm terrible at math. I'm still trying though :D
