My conjecture:- Inspiration Nihar Mahajan.

I often see people cramming about learning the position of points in a 3D Co-ordinate system. So, Here I have a conjecture.

Imagine the Points (3,-3,-3).

First, Using Basic Co-ordinate system geometry, We can see that (3,-3) lies in the 4rd Quadrant. Now, Since (-3) is a negative number, The point (3,-3,-3) will lie in the octate just behind The 4rd Quadrant i.e. The 8th Octnt

Similarly, For any point (a,b,c)(a,b,c) We can first visualize The quadrant in which (a,b)(a,b) lies, and then visualize the octant in which (a,b,c)(a,b,c) lies, using the value of c(whether it is positive or negative.)

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.

Good thinking but i feel that whatever you are saying does not satisfy the dictionary meaning of conjecture.

Hmm, I agree, But what else can we name it? :P

Can it be called as some sort of algorithm?
