Just for curiosity's sake, where exactly does brilliant get its math/physics problems from? Is it from past AMC/AIME/USAMO/IMO competitions, or do people sit down and create these problems from scratch?

TopNewestMost of the problems are created by the Brilliant Challenge Masters and their team.

Recently, there have been some students that submitted original problems which they came up with. These problems, if used, will come along with the statement "This problem has been proposed by X", and provide a link to the profile. You are welcome to submit problems (with well written solutions) to Mathematics@brilliant.org. – Calvin Lin Staff · 4 years, 4 months ago

At least some of them are written by their staff. They also say in their FAQ that you can submit problems for consideration, and if selected to appear in a Pset, would be given credit. – Maddy B · 4 years, 4 months ago

Both of them, I think. Maybe, they just pick a little problems from google, and then they edit them. – Ivan Pito Pradhana · 4 years, 4 months ago
