There is a solution?

Re: e

The next should solve this problem: https://brilliant.org/community-problem … 2xoj76HJcf

and tell if he likes my solution after reading it.

No, because there is a bug in the above code!

Re: e

Like what? A spelling mistake?

by the way, the last solution of the e problem which I showed you used a little different version of your code.

Re: e

Do you now agree with the decision to drop off the 2?

Re: e

I've no idea why you did that except maybe to get rid of the decimal in between.

Re: e

Yes, at the time I decided that the 2 in 2.71... had to be dropped because it was not consecutive because there was a decimal in between. Perhaps they wanted me to just drop the decimal point. Also it does not matter whether we I included it or not because it does not change the answer but it does change the position!

Look at post 28 again, and re-read my code in that solution
