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.

$i,\pi ,\Phi ,e,0$ went to a TV program. They try to roast each other to gain pride.
$i$ says: Oi! You lot! Why don’t you learn from 0 and get rational?
$\pi$: Because being transcendental feels special!
$\Phi$ taunts back: I’m the special one! I’m the golden ratio!
$e$: Yeah, come on, 0 is nothing, ain’t it?
$0$: Well, at least I’m real!
$\Phi ,e$: Well but we’re at least something!
$\pi$: Shuddup! $\Phi=\dfrac{1+\sqrt 5}{2},i=\sqrt{-1},e=\lim _{x\to 0} (1+x)^{\frac1x}$, but I can’t be algebraically represented!

F, C, or K?

- 2 months ago

C, because it is the only temperature unit in which it will be very hot. But it could be F also if not much hot.

It depends on the temperature you want @Vinayak Srivastava

It is our choice

First, check out about redshift & blueshift on wiki if you don’t know what that means.
A physicist was driving across a cross-section when the $\color{#D61F06} \text{red}$ traffic light was on. He bumped into a pedestrian and hurt him. On the court, he was accused of violating the traffic safety code.

He said: It’s not my fault! I assume you have heard of redshift and blueshift?
The judge checks it out on wiki.
The physicist continued: When I was driving, the traffic light was moving towards me relatively, so I experienced blueshift and mistook red for green!
The judge nods and thought in silence for a while.

Then he said: Well then, at what speed would you expect such a light shift?
The physicist answered: Approximately 90% light speed?
The judge says: $\text{VERY WELL! YOU ARE NOW CHARGED WITH A FEE OF 114 MILLION DOLLARS,}$ $\text{BECAUSE YOU WENT 90\% LIGHT SPEED FASTER THAN THE LIMITED SPEED!}$ Physicist: Why did I say that? WHY? WHY?

Why is the alphabet called the alphabet? Because $\alpha \beta$ = alphabeta = alphabet! :D

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Although it is a good joke, it is actually true. That's why the ABC's are called the "alphabet"

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Oh! Never knew that. Just thought it was the only reasonable explanation to the word ‘alphabet’. :)

For clarification, Gold $= 79$, Titanium $= 22$, Iron $= 26$, Oxygen $= 8$

All numbers are atomic numbers.

- 2 months, 1 week ago

I get it @Yajat Shamji, but not all numbers are atomic numbers

That is like saying infinite elements exist (do infinite elements exist?)

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Why is Iron Man called Iron Man despite needing oxygen? Because:

$\frac{Gold}{Titanium}$ $\approx$ $\frac{Iron}{Oxygen}$

Why is tanos(thanos) called tanos? Sin happens cos(because) of tanos.:

Seeing a video about a book the 10 sins(crimes), someone stared a joke in the comment zone:
the 9 sins-there aren’t 10 sins
the 8 sins-there aren’t 9 sins
the 7 sins-there aren’t 8 sins
...
the sin-there aren’t 2 sins
THEN things got weird.
the -1 sins-there aren’t positive sins
the 0.5 sins-integer sins don’t exist
the $\pi$ sins-rational sins? you must be kidding
the $i$ sins-there are no real sins
the $1+i$ sins-there are only complex sins
I read all that and thought:no sins-there is no sin :D

- 2 months, 1 week ago

@Jeff Giff, you sinner, you have committed the biggest sin, and that is dethroning @Siddharth Chakravarty and making me laugh :)

You're winner for now.......

The basic joke: $\cfrac{sin\; x}{n}=\cfrac{si\cancel{n}\; x}{\cancel{n}}=six=6$

- 2 months, 1 week ago

I don't get it @Páll Márton

- 2 months, 1 week ago

You should simplify $\cfrac{sin\; x}{n}$. And you just divide by n

Oh, ok, now i get it, nice! but its not enough.

$i$ and $π$ went into a roast contest.

Whoever roasts the other guy in the best way wins

$i$ said to $π$, "Get rational"

$π$ said to $i$, "Although I am transcendental, and not "rational", at least I am real"

Yeah. This is copy paste from there: link

- 2 months, 1 week ago

Yup, i read it there only

I promise

I have never seen that before.

I just made it up @Páll Márton.

That's a good one, but I've heard it before, so it doesn't make me laugh, no offense

Find the volume of a pizza with height A and radius Z

Formula = pi * r^2 * h

Answer = pizza (r = z, h = a)

So the volume of the pizza is pizza. LOL XD

For the joke of $\pi+e=pie(yummy)$, shouldn't it be $\pi \times e=pie(yummy)$?. Because in algebra when two letters are joined (English, Spanish, French, Greek etc.) it means multiplied by.

Try this:
There was once when the principal came to observe our Maths lesson, while we were learning $\pi$.

Our teacher asked us the value of $\pi$ during the lesson.

There were several answers: ‘approximately $3.14$’ ‘$\dfrac{22}{7}$ or $\dfrac{355}{113}$’...

Then one classmate started reciting the value of $\pi$.

‘The value of pi is $3.14159265358979323\color{#D61F06}\underline{2020}...$

That was when a round of applause started off in our classroom.

Trust me, if I didn’t hear my phone number between the numbers, I would’ve fallen for it!
