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.

Also, when I edit a solution and repost it, the formatting goes weird and I have to resubmit or delete the solution. It happened to me today, and it was kind of annoying.

Hmm, they are showing on the notes and problems that I've shared. (It shows nothing if a note or problem has no likes or reshares.) Can you send a screenshot and a link to an example note?

TopNewestSame here, so it probably is a bug. And also while editing a solution, a lot of unnecessary backslashes appear.
