The Tedious Problem Depopulariser 2000

If you happen to come across an unnecessarily tedious problem, feel free to leave a link on this note and I will remove it from the popular problems section.

The only rule is that it should be a recent problem, say, in the past few weeks.

Hall of infamy:

[Once enough problems come in, I'll make expand the list of examples. Let me be lazy.]

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.

The problem mentioned in the hall of infamy is epic :D I'd rather memorize the value of π\pi upto 500 decimal places than to solve it :D

I don't think you should be doing this... Like for the Hall of infamy, the question is meant as a joke and even has a price tagged on the solution.

Poon, I haven't worked out or checked the solution yet, even though I'm pretty sure that the problem, however outrageously complicated, is legit. In spite of the irrational differentiation, which is something I told Muradeli about. Apparently he was a quick study.
