# The Lowest Rated Problem?

Okay, have you ever wondered what the lowest rated problem on Brilliant is? Well, I think it's this one. Even if it isn't, let's make it that!

Those of you who frequently use Brilliant know that if you solve a problem, its rating goes down a little bit. So, I ask everyone to give the problem above a try. As more of you solve it, the lower the rating will go.

Let's see how low can it go!

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.

That user should be banned from posting problems. He always posts ridiculous problems and when you submit obvious answer, he says its wrong..

The previous answer to the problem was 1, which was of course wrong, and many got it wrong and the rating went up. I am glad they fixed it.

Its showing that rating of problem is 410 and mine 1070 i think its a bug because as far as i think rating is the average of ratings of the users who hve solved it
