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 see that you are using a desktop browser. You can access the "hamburger" menu through the top right corner and select "report problem". This way, we get the report on the problem directly, instead of a random note that we have to figure out which problem you are attempting to talk about.

This is very very curious and and particularly not self-explanatory. A "bravo" for the user interface!
But perhaps a wizard could detect such good hidden feature. ;-)))

First I must declare that I was never good in finding things - for example mushrooms in the wood. That's why I always enjoy when someone guides me directly to a destination. So I would have faster found the report ability if it was visible via en explicit labled button for example.

TopNewestHi Andreas, as mentioned in the previous note:

Can you link me to the problem itself?

Just submitting a report would have been fine. Do you need any help with how to do that?
