The Number Of Followers...

Try opening the image in a new tab to view it properly.

I just discovered something. No matter how many followers you have, you can't see more than 100100 of them in the followers page under your profile. Is this a bug? Or is this the intended behavior? This means if you have more than a hundred followers, some of them will not be displayed on the page. How is this determined?

The image above is a screenshot of my "followers" page and search bar is showing that the term "followers" appears 102102 times on the page. If we discount the ones on top and the left of the page, we're left with 100100 followers when clearly I have more.

So, is this a bug?

Thank you.

PS: I've tried this with other users' profiles as well. Even if this is the intended behavior, it seems a bit odd to me.

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.

Mursalin -- nothing escapes your eyes! We only show 100 profiles for now. That is a shortcut that we took in order to keep the page fast. Someday in the (near) future, we will add a "load more" feature.

Was that a compliment? :)

That is really considerate.

Good to know!

Heaven knows that if someone were trying to load my "Following" page, that it would surely crash their computer. :)

You should think about what would happen if someone wanted to see the followers page of the best of algebra!

Silas, this keen observation is what makes a great mathematician.

who will solve this: In the series of odd numbers 1+ 3 + 5 – 7 – 9 – 11+13 +15 +17 – 19 – 21– 23 ... the signs alternate every three terms, as shown. What is the sum of the first 360 terms of the series?

how did you solve that?

@Sälmän Rähmän Make groups of 6 consecutive terms! So there will be 3606=60\frac{360}{6}=60 groups! And some of each group will be 18-18...

So sum=60×18=1080=60×-18=-1080
