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.

It may mean the same thing in Brilliant too

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!

Since you have premium, go to stats and at the bottom you will see something like this

I don't know if there is some problem with my browser, but I can't see any section like that!

@Vinayak Srivastava Go to the top right section, Click The grey icon with three lines. Go down and select the Stats button. You will be redirected to another tab. Go at the bottom of this page.

@Vinayak Srivastava Ask @Brilliant Mathematics if this a bug. I don't know much about this thus I was asking as well through this discussion

@Mahdi Raza Now I even tried it with the View Mobile Site and couldn't see there also.

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?

Vinayak Srivastava - 3 months, 2 weeks ago

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

@Hamza Anushath, maybe that is the case. Can you see the section?

Vinayak Srivastava - 3 months, 2 weeks ago

@Vinayak Srivastava No, because I do not use Brilliant Premium

@Mahdi Raza Yes, maybe I am doing something else..

@Vinayak Srivastava I don't understand what do you mean by "steps for stats"? Are you talking about how to reach the stats page?

Mahdi Raza - 3 months, 2 weeks ago

@Mahdi Raza Yes, I followed this page: this

@Vinayak Srivastava Yes, go down to problems tried, and tap on a date.From the dropdown there will be outcome coloumn which will show how much your rating has changed. Positive means better and vice-verse
