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.

Support to @Steven Chase sir.
That feature of seeing that who has solved the problem till now, was really a good feature.
It is useful in many ways like
If I have uploaded a problem,and I have little bit doubt in that problem, and no one have posted its solution till now, and suppose the feature is showing 2,3,... solvers, so using that feature we can communicate to those peoples who have solved the problem correctly.
Hope Brilliant will again add that feature.

Talulah Riley - 6 months, 3 weeks ago

Oh! But if you press the solvers button, then it will move a bit still :)

A Former Brilliant Member - 6 months, 3 weeks ago

But it doesn't show the solvers. Maybe they forgot to remove that feature :)

Percy Jackson - 6 months, 3 weeks ago

Hi Lil Doug, this is a known issue. I've forwarded this issue to the engineering team.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

Greetings. It used to be that when we clicked on the number of solvers for a community problem, it would expand and show who had solved it. That feature no longer exists, but the expansion is still there. Was the intent to remove the feature, and if so, why is the expansion still there? I thought it was a nice feature anyway, and I was a bit sad to see it go.

Steven Chase - 6 months, 3 weeks ago

Yeah, I liked that feature too. Now it just changes to Hide Solvers, and expands a bit.

Percy Jackson - 6 months, 3 weeks ago

Hi Steven Chase, this is a known issue. I've forwarded this issue to the engineering team.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

No offense but aren't you referring to the wrong person?

Steven Jim - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Steven Jim Yes, Brilliant Mathematics copy\pasted the comment from Lil Doug's query. He\she needs to save time as he\she has a lot of work.

Percy Jackson - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Percy Jackson Well, while I understand that, false references have always come to me as something really odd. After all, if you can't get the name right, what else could you? shrugs

Just asking tho, don't mind me :)

Steven Jim - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Steven Jim Haha, you're right. I've fixed it.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Thanks for looking into it

Steven Chase - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics - Who makes wikis? Are the wikis constantly getting updated? Do new wikis keep coming? How do you add the View Wiki button to your problem based on the relevant wiki? Also, please see my latest note - Tau, which is my attempt of making a note that looks like a wiki :)

Percy Jackson - 6 months, 3 weeks ago

Hi Percy, the staff make wiki pages.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

Oh! Did you see my note that looks like a wiki? Its pretty close, but doesn't exactly look like a wiki yet :)

Percy Jackson - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Percy Jackson @Brilliant Mathematics can you let users have a chance to make wikis like putting forward a completed note for it and then you publish it with their name so talented people like @Percy Jackson get recognised

NSCS 747 - 5 months, 2 weeks ago

@Nscs 747 I think they did that once before. I've seen a note by Calvin Lin I guess about this. A few users collaborated and helped in making many of the notes. They might've staff or moderators, I dunno. @Nathan Soliman

Percy Jackson - 5 months, 2 weeks ago

@Percy Jackson Hi Nathan and Percy, we currently disable users from editing wiki pages for the time being. We planned to enable this feature in the near future.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 5 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Ok, thanks for replying :)

Percy Jackson - 5 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics what was the 100 day challenge for and what happens in it

NSCS 747 - 5 months, 2 weeks ago

@Nscs 747 The 100-day challenge was a special series of Daily Challenges which included some of the best DCs of the past and some fun and challenging new DCs. It was also an opportunity for us to put in some tougher DCs (towards the end of the challenge) since we normally try to cater our DCs to a more general audience.

If you participated in the 100-day challenge, then you can expect something special in your email inbox soon (check if you have email notifications enabled in your settings).

Andrew Hayes Staff - 5 months, 2 weeks ago

@Andrew Hayes Ok, thanks for clearing that up, I had the same thought :)

Percy Jackson - 5 months, 2 weeks ago

@Andrew Hayes what do we recieve and so far i havenot recieved anything yet

NSCS 747 - 5 months, 2 weeks ago

That's a nice pseudo-Wiki I gotta say :)

Steven Jim - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

Thank you!

Percy Jackson - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics I am unable to see my levels in About in profile

Please rectify this issue.

Aryan Sanghi - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics in fact I am unable to see anyone's level. Is it deliberately removed or it is a bug?

Aryan Sanghi - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

Yup, me too, must be a deliberate removal @Aryan Sanghi :)

Percy Jackson - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

Me too, it would appear this is a deliberate removal as the levels view on the stats page has also been removed.

Matthew Christopher - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics please reply.

Aryan Sanghi - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics the points option is also removed. Please see to it.

Aryan Sanghi - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

Thanks. We're aware of it. We will restore it after some bugs are resolved.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Ok sir, thanku for seeing to it. :)

Aryan Sanghi - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

On the make a problem bit, could you add a multiple choice option. That would be a cool new way of answering and formatting questions with multiple answers

James Watson - 6 months ago

Yes, I agree. Buttons would also come handy, but it might not be possible to interpret the original code :)

Jeff Giff - 6 months ago

yeah maybe

James Watson - 6 months ago

@James Watson Hi James and Jeff, thank you for your suggestion.

I've already submitted this feedback to our engineering team.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months ago

What does community contribution means? How do you calculate it? Is this means how many people read my posts? Or this means approximately how many people learned something from my posts.

A Former Brilliant Member - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Can I see a list about all built in codes(for formatting)?

A Former Brilliant Member - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

I unfortunately, do not have that ability. Some of the "built in codes" might be obsolete as they are being replaced in the near future.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

When I use a button after each block the paddings are different. The first line has always smaller padding

A Former Brilliant Member - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

Can you send me a screenshot of this?

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

A Former Brilliant Member - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@A Former Brilliant Member I believed this is intentional.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Yeah, I belived the wrong latex code edited the whole content, but not.

A Former Brilliant Member - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

I have already contacted support through the chat function about this but it is very annoying. A few days ago my stat graphs suddenly disappeared from the page. Now I just have my course completion and the day by block view (problems tried) of what problems I have completed. I can click on these to see my problems solved and rating changes, but I have no ability to click a specific topic and see my progress in the graph. I've tried on 2 different (desktop) devices and cleared all my browser data.

Matthew Christopher - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

I’m very sorry about this – it sounds like you’re hitting a bug in our site/app. 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.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

Thank you. I have sent you the video.

Matthew Christopher - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

Same thing for my account.

Barry Leung - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Hi, I contacted support on the chat system and they said that this was recently removed on purpose. Why was this removed? The feature is so useful and one that I use all the time as part of my premium membership to track my progress. Very disappointing.

Matthew Christopher - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Matthew Christopher I still have my stats page? Why don't you have yours? If this was a removed feature, why do I still have my stats? @Brilliant Mathematics , @Matthew Christopher

Percy Jackson - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Percy Jackson I still have my stats page too, I am referring to the graph that you see for each topic as your rating changes. That has been removed.

Matthew Christopher - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Matthew Christopher I'm sorry to hear that. But that is not my decision to make.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

Hi, I never saw any graph option on my laptop, is it only on phone? Also, where is the contact support button? Please help me.

Vinayak Srivastava - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Vinayak Srivastava No, it was on desktop and phones, but now just on phones. If you go to the menu where you can go to stats or profile there is a button at the bottom.

Matthew Christopher - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Matthew Christopher But I couldn't ever see it.

Vinayak Srivastava - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Vinayak Srivastava Not sure, I had seen it for months before.

Matthew Christopher - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Matthew Christopher I am using the site for months, and sometimes I open the Stats, but I never have seen it. I think its weird.

Vinayak Srivastava - 6 months, 2 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics, please see this discussion. Thanks!

Vinayak Srivastava - 6 months, 1 week ago

Hi Vinayak, we will look into it. Thanks.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 1 week ago

@Brilliant Mathematics, I believe there's a bug in the Problems section:

When you get a problem wrong and exit, you get two eyes (denotes you looked at the solution) instead of the hmm... emoji.

Yajat Shamji - 6 months, 1 week ago

Me too @Yajat Shamji . Seems like BRILLIANT has lots of bugs and removals since this note was made. hmmmm...emoji

Percy Jackson - 6 months, 1 week ago

When I close a "window" or dismiss a notification, then the symbol is a "magnifying glass".

Hi Páll. I’m very sorry about this – it sounds like you’re hitting a bug in our site/app. 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.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 1 week ago

Super fast! Now it is working :)

A Former Brilliant Member - 6 months, 1 week ago

Excuse me, is the average counted as one of the Zodiac animals here to make the total 13? If not, please edit it. Thanks in advance!

Jeff Giff - 6 months, 1 week ago

Nice find. I've fixed it.

In the future, if you have concerns about a problem's wording/clarity/etc., you can report the problem. See how here.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 6 months, 1 week ago

Oh :) I forgot that I could do so

Jeff Giff - 6 months, 1 week ago

Maybe I am asking a senseless question, if that is the case, I am extremely sorry.

In this should it be "orbitals" or "orbits"? Thanks!

Vinayak Srivastava - 5 months, 4 weeks ago

Good eye. I've updated the text to reflect this.

In the future, if you have concerns about a problem's wording/clarity/etc., you can report the problem. See how here.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 5 months, 4 weeks ago

But it is still written "orbitals" only! Also, I have seen that if I have attempted a problem in a quiz, I can't report it, I can only report it if I have not attempted, is it a bug?

Vinayak Srivastava - 5 months, 4 weeks ago

@Vinayak Srivastava @Brilliant Mathematics?

Also, @Vinayak Srivastava, I definitely think it's a bug...

Yajat Shamji - 5 months, 4 weeks ago

@Vinayak Srivastava Hi Vinayak, we will revisit the orbits/oribitals issue shortly.

For the report issue: I am still able to report it after I've attempt it.

Either way, it sounds like you’re hitting a bug in our site/app. 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.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Ok, and I also can't see two menus in the notification bar, "Want to work at Brilliant" and "Contact support". I came to know from the Daily Challenge page, please see to that. Thank you!

Vinayak Srivastava - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Vinayak Srivastava Yes, thanks for pointing it out to me here.

I will try to respond to you as soon as the engineering team will respond to me.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics It seems working now, actually the mouse pointer was not changing which changes when I need to click somewhere. I think its working for one quiz, I will check for another quiz when I will attempt it, if it does not work, I will let you know, thank you for helping!

Vinayak Srivastava - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Vinayak Srivastava Hi Vinayak. For the orbits/orbitals phrasing issue: The science problem writers informed me that it's fine as it is.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Ok, but can you please elaborate a little? It seems I am missing some concept.

Vinayak Srivastava - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Vinayak Srivastava Hi Vinayak, I do not have all the answers here. It would easier if you just submit a report to that link directly.


Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Ok, thank you!

Vinayak Srivastava - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Even though I have reported, in the "View Reports" section, it is writing "No Reports yet." Is my report not gone?

Vinayak Srivastava - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Vinayak Srivastava Hi Vinayak, that's intentional. We will respond to you shortly.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Brilliant Mathematics Ok, sorry Sir for wasting your time.

Vinayak Srivastava - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

@Vinayak Srivastava No problem at all. Thank you so much for screening problems on Brilliant and helping to improve the community for everyone.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Excuse me, could you please help me to deal with these problem reports? Draw it in one go, Find Minimum of (1a+2b+4c)\left(\dfrac1a+\dfrac2b+\dfrac4c\right)

Edward Christian - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

You can mention them under the reports

A Former Brilliant Member - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Hi Edward, I've resolved all the reports to your first problem, but your second problem is still flawed.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Can you post a question on a tablet/iPad?

Lâm Lê - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Hi Lin, we currently do not have that feature.

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 5 months, 2 weeks ago

Hi, In the daily challenge section, can you create a comment at the top of your solution. Under which everyone should answer? Sometimes it spoils the fun for others. Thanks!

Mahdi Raza - 5 months, 3 weeks ago

Hi Mahdi, I like your suggestion. Unfortunately, I don't think many people can adhere to that rule.

In the meantime, I will try to figure out a more efficient way to de-clutter the solution discussions...

Brilliant Mathematics Staff - 5 months, 2 weeks ago

r u a real person or a automated

NSCS 747 - 5 months, 2 weeks ago
