New Series: Proof Problem Of The Day!

Hello everyone!

I'm thinking of introducing a new series of notes on Brilliant. The notes will deal with proof based problems.

Everyday I'll post a problem that asks you to prove something and you'll get the chance to solve them, post solutions and join in discussions. I know that coming up with an original problem everyday is really challenging. So, most of the problems I'll post won't be original (and by 'most', I mean 'almost all').

I also wish to see some really good discussions on the notes. One of things that I've noticed on Brilliant is that notes don't get enough comments. Sites like AoPS and MSE usually have better discussions than Brilliant.

I'd love to be proven wrong about this [pun intended :)].

Click here to see the first problem and keep checking this set for more problems.

Have fun proving!

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.

I have a set with proof and derivation problems in maths and physics. Here's the link Proof, Disprood, and Derivation.

Why don't you post your own solution after each day ends?Otherwise,there will be many posts left unanswered.
