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.

The percentile rank of a score is the percentage of scores in its frequency distribution that are equal to or lower than it. For example, a test score that is greater than 75% of the scores of people taking the test is said to be at the 75th percentile, where 75 is the percentile rank.

I just saw this question and realized that I haven't found this word on Brilliant, where is it? Also, I wish to know how levels are categorized in Brilliant because I feel both percentile and levels are somewhat related, although I still don't remember any place where I could see my percentile rank. Thanks for asking this question!

All I see is this:

Current streak: Quizzes finished: Problems solved:

Then all the courses and their meter that shows how much I've done

Then problems tried where I can click on any day to see the problems I tried.

@Brilliant Mathematics, I can't find the section which shows my percentile, could you please help?

Log in to reply

I don't think you are in the top 100 (or some other number) percentile

That's why you can't find it @Vinayak Srivastava
