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.

Woah... I happen to know that the highest amount of reshares on Brilliant is 163. (A post by me "1,000 Reshares?"). Unfortunately, we didn't make it to 1,000 :D.

Ha, yep. You still got the most though. I remember some guy was all like, " How dare you try to push everyone else's posts downwards." You were just like, " ya........:( ok."

See this: Problem of Classical Geometry. The statistics of the problem:

More than 8500 attempts.

More than 4800 solvers.

More than 1400 views.

90 shares.

42 likes.

50 solutions.

The number of the highest upvotes is 96 and it looks like will keep increasing.

The top commentator has 31 upvotes.

Countless comments.

And the notification is really annoying me since I get more than 200 emails only in a week since it's shared.
