# test: how many newlines are required to let indent create a "box"?

box-1: it seems not to be possible to start with a box without having a line with text before the box. because empty lines between this box and the start will be deleted automatically. line below

line above box0: no empty line between this box and the lines below and above. line below

line above

box1: only one empty line between this box and the line above.


line below

line above box2: only one empty line between this box and the line below.

line below

line above

box3: one empty line between this box and the line above and one between this box and the line below.


line below

conclusion: to create a "box" by using indent (4 spaces), before the box there has to be a line with text(even invisible, like ~) followed by an empty line.

final box: nothing below

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.
