Writing solutions

To all Brilliant users,

I would like to ask if there is a proper way to write solutions. Many awesome solution writers have received many upvotes because their solutions are just wonderful. Are there any specific keywords to use, like 'We have'? I would appreciate it if anyone could also make a full, separate post of this. I trust that it would be extremely useful. One more point, I find myself repeating the same words over and over again when writing my solution.

Thanks so much.

Victor

You can view my Solution writing notes, which covers a very wide range of what makes a good solution.

There is nothing wrong with repeating the same words over and over again (This is not an English class). Calvin Lin Staff · 2 years, 10 months ago

Just keep it short and sweet...For eg. check out my solution for Unbalanced Maximum. I kept it really short, and this might be the reason that I received 55 upvotes for this solution. Anish Puthuraya · 2 years, 10 months ago

@Shikhar Jaiswal it was 55 upvotes few weeks ago (when brilliant made it such that we cannot view our own upvotes) Anish Puthuraya · 2 years, 10 months ago
