Hello Brilliant!

Once more, Problem Writing Party number 5 was a record breaking success: this time we made **nine** new quizzes! Here are the quizzes that you all helped create:

New Brilliant Challenge Quizzes

Simple Harmonic Motion: Level 2-3

Simple Harmonic Motion: Level 4-5

Functions: Level 3

Functions: Level 4

Functions: Level 5

2D Coordinate Geometry: Level 3

2D Coordinate Geometry: Level 4

2D Coordinate Geometry: Level 5

Capacitors and Transformers: Level 2-3

We're going to show off all the hard work these members of the community put in over the last week. Continue submitting your fantastic problems as we kick off our **sixth** Problem Writing Party!

The party starts right now (March 28th, 2016) and will last for the next two weeks. Throughout the two weeks, we will be focusing on writing awesome problems for the topics listed in quizzes that need your help on the **publish** page.

To join, submit as many problems as you want to these listed topics. At the end of the party, Brilliant staff will be picking the best 5-10 problems for each topic. These problems will then be immortalized and formed into a challenge quiz. If we pick your problem, then you can brag to your friends because it will be displayed on Brilliant forever! Your problem has a better chance of being selected if you include a graphic (when appropriate) and a solution.

Ask questions about the party or brainstorming ideas from Brilliant staff.

Share links to great relevant problems.

Bounce your ideas off each other to help formulate the best problem you can.

*To be selected, problems you submit should be fun and challenging to a student in levels 1-3 for the given topic.*

The topics of problem submission for this party can be found by navigating over to the Brilliant publish page and checking under the quizzes that need your help section. Just click the contribute button next to the topic you want to make a submission to.

Happy writing and keep the party alive!

Log in to reply

How did you get such an awesome stock? ;)

Log in to reply

I created it day by day. Gradually they filled up the whole stock. ;)

Log in to reply

I saw Sand of Time before...

Log in to reply

Oh, really? I thought it'd fit the topic, so I put it here.

Log in to reply

This will be updated as necessary.

Can you please post the solution for second part as for some reasons my answer is not matching.

P.S. great question indeed.

Log in to reply

Actually I did a mistake in my calculation and the answer to the second part is wrong. Extremely sorry.

@Aditya Sky Your problems are great. Can you post such wonderful problems from the topics selected for this party?

Log in to reply

Hope you like this one Find out the range!

Log in to reply

Looks difficult to me. BTW nice one. Thanks! ;)

Log in to reply

Here's my submission to the party . I will post more soon.

Here is the set of few computer science problems on Linear Data Structures

Log in to reply

Very smart set! Thanks :)

Log in to reply

Here is a problem on Similarity

Log in to reply

Great problem Soumava! I recommend redrawing your graphic though. The numbers are a little too small to read and they'll be even smaller if added to a quiz. Moreover, be smart about your canvas size. Make sure your graphic fills up the entire canvas instead of leaving white space around the edges. See the difference below:

Before

After

I am redrawing it right away Sir. :D

I Request @Sandeep Bhardwaj sir to add these problems too to his previous comment

Log in to reply

Just awesome!

Log in to reply

sir i am not able to see points a problem corresponds to only the level of problem is visible . can you help?

Log in to reply

@Prakhar Bindal

Brilliant doesn't display the points of a problem anymore. Only the level is displayed. So, enjoy with the level itself. ;)Log in to reply

Now it's time for Algebra-Symmetrical Polynomials: Squares In Between.

Hint: the solution is also symmetrical. ;)Log in to reply

Perfect symmetry! ;)

Log in to reply

Filling up Spheres: This is an old problem, and is not just about solids of revolution. I hope this can do, though. :)

Log in to reply

There should be a fish in the tank. Nice problem, thanks! ;)

Log in to reply

Maybe this old problem of mine would be useful for discrete probability:

Good Car, Bad Car

Log in to reply

The car in the image is definitely a bad car. But the problem is good. ;) Thanks!
