# Trollathon

This is inspired by the NIMO April fool contest. There will be $15$ problems in this problem set. Some problem must be solved based on the other problems. Calculator and other electronic devices are allowed. You need a sense of humor to complete the contest. :)

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.

There was this really easy question in codeforces for april's fool and you need to submit it for at least 4 times in order for the solution to be correct.

@Zi Song Yeoh Can you add this note to your Trollathon 2 and 3 sets? I'm going to update their names, so that people are aware that the problems are Trollathon problems, and this should reduce the clarification requests from people who do not know the spirit of your problems.

I have a Trollathon-like question: Why isn't it 11
