Select a number (Statistics)

This note is part of the set Select a number. Check out the rules here.

Here are the simple statistics for the 1010 rounds of Select a number.

Total Points :

11 Yash Singhal 304.5304.5

22 Math Man 292.04292.04

33 Tan Li Xuan 290.17290.17

However, as there are significantly less people in the last round, the points obtained are quite high (outliers). So, the top 33 for the first 99 rounds are worth pointing out too.

11 Mursalin Habib 236.78236.78

22 Anuj Shikarkhane 234.26234.26

33 Yash Singhal 221.78221.78

Kudos for Yash Singhal for being in the top 33 for both all rounds and Rounds 191 - 9 despite only participating in a total of 88 rounds!

Next, we have a look at the mean.

Technically, the 33 highest mean scorers would be Sai Prasanth Pao, Ayush Vardhan Sinha and Pang Robin. (with a huge lead)

However, since they only participated in only one round, so the mean might not be accurate (especially only Round 1010)

So, we list only those who participated in at least 33 rounds as a general law :

11 Krishna Sharma 49.2349.23

22 Utkarsh Dwivedi 44.944.9

33 Yash Singhal 38.0638.06

Also, since the last round is quite an outlier, we'll list the top for the first 99 rounds.

11 Dhruv Bhasin 31.731.7

22 Yash Singhal 31.6831.68

33 Kinshuk Singh 31.15531.155

Also, we also list those who participated in all rounds :

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 can't believe I forgot to submit in the last round!

Ya, if you did, I think you'll definitely get #1 as the last round was a serious outlier. Still, you are still #1 most of the time and after 9 rounds. :)
