I wanted to know if finding answers to math problems ( from the algebra, number theory and combinatorics sections ) using programming languages really serves the purpose (I read someone pointing out that Brilliant accepts these solutions and the purpose of this thread is to discuss the same). I know that the 'Data Structures and Algorithms' section has been missing for quite a while now from Brilliant, but using a computer to find solutions for beautiful math problems just doesn't enrich one's domain knowledge*. Posting such solutions does very little help and does not aid in understanding the concepts involved in solving the problem. There are websites like projecteuler.net which require the use of both: math skills and coding skills. But since brilliant does not have problems that necessitate the use of a computer, I suggest that users avoid^ using such techniques or at least, refrain from posting such solutions.
*All points mentioned are my views only and I don't intend to force them on any other user.
^May be a harsh term :P
