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.

The problems are really unique and interesting. I even checked out their database and solved some previous year BMO, Cayley olympiad papers. Will you be posting more btw?

Yes - just keep checking the UKMT Specials Note and problems will be daily.

Sorry man, don't got much time on my hands. Also, I have to update the animation from yesterday's daily challenge as some people(cough Frisk and Nathan cough) have asked for a few changes, so I'm adding custom elements. The coming week's exams don't help. I'll try to solve them if I get time :)

Check the UKMT Specials Note for problem-solving time, always!

It helps! :)
