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.

Lately, I've noticed that when I am writing Latex and I've made a small mistake and I try to preview it, the whole thing goes haywire. Sometimes removing the offending line corrects it, but sometimes not. Here's an example of what it looks like when this happens (I've cut most of it out). I was in the middle of writing a note at the time, and I can't get it to display anything sensible. And I can't get back to any decent state. It seems one can potentially lose a huge amount of work due to this. The note I was posting was an image and a bunch of Latex.

Suppose the particle is projected in the <span class="katex"><span class="katex-mathml">$<semantics><mrow><mo>+</mo><mi>x</mi></mrow><annotation encoding="application/x-tex"> +x </annotation></semantics>$</span><span class="katex-html" aria-hidden="true"><span class="base"><span class="strut" style="height:0.66666em;vertical-align:-0.08333em;"></span><span class="mord">+</span><span class="mord mathdefault">x</span></span></span></span> direction, and that the magnetic flux density is in the <span class="katex"><span class="katex-mathml">$<semantics><mrow><mo>+</mo><mi>z</mi></mrow><annotation encoding="application/x-tex"> + z </annotation></semantics>$</span><span class="katex-html" aria-hidden="true"><span class="base"><span class="strut" style="height:0.66666em;vertical-align:-0.08333em;"></span><span class="mord">+</span><span class="mord mathdefault" style="margin-right:0.04398em;">z</span></span></span></span> direction.

Hi James and Steven, this was a bug that was recently resolved. Please notify us if you are able to reproduce this bug again.

Staff - 1 week, 5 days ago

Sir, I encountered this bug recently yesterday while posting a solution. :)@Brilliant Mathematics

- 1 week, 2 days ago

To help us get to the bottom of this and fix it for you – please send us a screenshot or screen video of the bug happening from your device to support@brilliant.org.

Staff - 1 week, 1 day ago

@Brilliant Mathematics sir, I wanted to ask about how to post questions having more than one correct answers. Whenever I try selecting more than one options as answer while posting question, the other option gets unmarked. Please help me. :)

Questions like above one having more than one correct answers. :)

- 1 week, 2 days ago

You're right, where'd you find the problem? Please share the link @Aryan Sanghi

- 1 week, 2 days ago

Here it is link to problem. :)

- 1 week, 2 days ago

Thank you :)

- 1 week, 1 day ago

@Brilliant Mathematics - What happens after the 100-day challenge? Andrew Hayes said that we'll receive an e-mail about it, but no mails so far.

- 1 week, 5 days ago

i was gonna say the same thing

- 1 week, 5 days ago

Hi Percy and Nathan, I currently do not have the answer to this question. I'll keep you posted whenever I have news.

Staff - 1 week, 5 days ago

Okay, makes sense, since your the Math moderator I guess. I'll ask Andrew Hayes later. Thanks anyway.

- 1 week, 5 days ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Hii. Sir there was a feature of showing, how many people have solved the problem till now .
But nowadays that feature is not working.
I will be happy to see that feature working again . Can you add that feature again? , it is a request.

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Hi Lil Doug. This is a known issue, I've already forwarded this request to the engineers.

Staff - 1 week, 4 days ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Sir whenever I post a note and lets suppose if I have to mention someone
So their link does not come as you can see here, here I was mentionting Karan Chatrath sir, but his link was not displaying.
Can you please fix this problem

- 1 week, 4 days ago

I agree that our tagging system isn't perfect. Here's a temporary solution:

Copy this string of text whenever you want to tag him:

 1 @ mention [353279:Karan Chatrath] 

Remove the spaces between @, mention and the [ symbol.

Staff - 1 week, 4 days ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Thanks.
How to know that six number code of different people
Can you give me the code of Steven Chase and Krishna Karthik.

- 1 week, 4 days ago

We currently only allow staff to view their ID number.

Steven Chase's ID is 1247521.

Krishna Karthik's ID is 6497226.

Staff - 1 week, 4 days ago

@Brilliant Mathematics by the way what does ID number mean?
Does it mean that this member is the nth number of Brilliant community.
Is it counting of members?

- 1 week, 4 days ago

Yes, something like that.

Staff - 1 week, 4 days ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Thanks..
What should I do if I want to become staff?

- 1 week, 4 days ago

I think Gooblesoft is a rather funnily mean pun on Google and Microsoft. Is it @Brilliant Mathematics?

- 1 week, 3 days ago

So, is my new method of mentioning people actually not allowed?

It in fact uses ID numbers, that is why...

- 1 week, 3 days ago

Must be a bug that the engineers are trying to fix, or maybe its an actual feature.

- 1 week, 3 days ago

Hi Percy, please refrain from spamming this discussion note. Thanks.

Staff - 1 week, 3 days ago

Ok, its edited to sound more sophisticated. your welcome

- 1 week, 2 days ago

Well, now everyone knows it, so almost everyone on Brilliant follows illegal practices. On the other hand, my ID is in my bio, so mentioning me using the ID number isn't illegal @Frisk Dreemurr lol

- 1 week, 3 days ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Yeah it really works.
Thanks I have mentioned below.

- 1 week, 4 days ago

@Lil Doug - If you want the ID of any member, got to a note or problem where the member has already been @mentioned or a note or problem that the member created. Now mention them there and type their name after the mention, so for you it'll be @Lil Doug mention[10587613:Lil Doug]. When you post this, you will be able to see their ID. Your ID for instance is mention[10587613:Lil Doug]. See @Frisk Dreemurr's note on the same topic for more clarity.

@Brilliant Mathematics Suppose this is the statistics of a particular problem

Is there any type of feature that can be added to see the profiles of who has viewed the problem till now, who has attempted the problem till now ?

- 1 week, 4 days ago

We currently do not have that feature.

Staff - 1 week, 4 days ago

@Brilliant Mathematics - How do we add the reference of the relevant wiki to a problem? I mean the "View Wiki" button that appears beside "Discuss Solutions" button.

- 1 week, 3 days ago

Hi Percy, currently, only the staff has the ability to add wiki links.

Staff - 1 week, 3 days ago

So on what basis do you guys add the link? Do you do it for popular problems that have a related wiki, or is there some kind of selection process which is classified, in which case you won't reply? @Brilliant Mathematics

- 1 week, 3 days ago

It's hard to answer your question. We used to do this for numerous problems but we stopped for various reasons, we might re-implement this feature in the future.

Staff - 1 week, 3 days ago

ok thanks for letting me know

- 1 week, 3 days ago

Also, can I just refer to you with something shorter than mention[1217290:Brilliant Mathematics], cause typing out mention[1217290:Brilliant Mathematics] makes my fingers wail in agony.

- 1 week, 3 days ago

There isn't a need to tag me all the time.

Staff - 1 week, 3 days ago

Ah yes, that would be easier, thanks.

- 1 week, 3 days ago

why did percy say 54 questions later

- 1 week, 2 days ago

I predicted that a question of Calcdoku would come 54 problems later, that's why :)

- 1 week, 2 days ago

@Frisk Dreemurr In which note, I will get all ID numbers?

- 1 week, 2 days ago

- 1 week, 2 days ago

Wait a sec, I'll mention you there :)

@Brilliant Mathematics can you please provide me the ID number of Mark Hennings.

Here ya go - Mark Hennings @Lil Doug

Is this the Mark Hennings you needed?

- 1 week, 1 day ago

@Percy Jackson I got it bro using that same trick of that discussion

- 1 week, 1 day ago

Oh, great!

- 1 week, 1 day ago

@Percy Jackson see my note. I have mentioned successfully.
That trick really works. You are awesome. Thanks for much such a great technique.

- 1 week, 1 day ago

Its actually @Frisk Dreemurr's technique, so she's the one you should thank :)

- 1 week, 1 day ago

:) Gee, thnx @Percy Jackson

- 1 week ago

Gee? Really? Is that even legal?

@Brilliant Mathematics can Brilliant make a dark mode in website?

- 1 week, 1 day ago

Thanks. I'll forward this suggestion to the engineers.

Staff - 1 week, 1 day ago

@Brilliant Mathematics - I am able to access a previous daily problem from the archives without a premium membership. I cannot access it from the archives, but when I go there using a link, I can access it, please clarify whether that is accessible or this is a bug. Thanks :)

Here's the link to the problem - How Many Paths?
