# Submitting solution to a problem

It is very disheartening that some users are selected to submit solutions to multiple problems while, some are not asked to submit even one(even after they have amassed more than 20K points, and/or they consistently solve problems correctly). It really feels very depressing. I would request the Brilliant staff to give attention to this(if not an issue). I would love to know from the Brilliant staff(if they don't mind disclosing it) the criteria for selecting a user to submit solution to a problem.

Sort by:

For each question, there is a random probability that students who got it correct will be asked to submit a solution. This probability increases for harder questions, to account for fewer people answering it correctly. Level 5 students (who already see significantly harder questions) and get 8 questions correct, will very likely get to submit at least one solution. The probability is independent of any other factor not related to the question (like the number of points a student has, the number of correct answers a student has submitted, if the student has already asked (or not asked) for a solution in that week, etc).

Note that questions worth less than 100 points have immediately redeemable solutions, hence will not apply.

I know that feel bro. It can happen at times. From what I have experienced if i miss out on giving the solution i'm usually not asked for one for weeks together. But when I submit and get it right, I have been asked maybe once or twice in 3 weeks. I don't know if its just me who has faced this. My friend has been asked for solution for every week since the last 5 weeks. From what the staff tell the user is randomly selected for submitting solutions. I have to add that it depends on an idiot called luck.

yes, I'm not familiar for writing solution like that.

I often just see the problems and answer it that cause my pencil always stay long (rarely use pen/pencil).

I think writing any exact solution always boring me. I like reading, listening and many data input to my brain, and write to check my thinking cause I usually write about many strange thing in this universe.

fhiiiuh... =_=
