Do you think we have enough math in these challenges? Answer with (more) or (less) and tell us why you think that.

less is better
i want to study code here not math.
i have studied math well.
just want to balance my knowledge.

(less)
And here's why...
I understand the importance of math in coding. However I don't think these challenges should be based soloy on math. Most of the time I find myself solving a math problem instead of actually using what I've learned here! I'm not suggesting math be taken out of these challenges, but to add more syntax and code related questions based on what we have learned at Sololearn. Another suggestion is to add a seperate challenge that focuses more on syntax and concepts of code And/Or add a small code related math course!

Neutral. Mathematical problems are okay but too (I repeat, TOOOOOOOOOOOO) complex calculations are difficult to do within limited time.

@Shamima, I would like to add that challenges should be more about logic rather than just pure maths, though maths is essential.

There is more than enough math in challenges.

I dont mind math problems. Easy points.

No math more, need more algorithms! I think that memory tricks knowledges (as sample) are more imported than limited time calculations.

personally I feel it's pretty good RN, but we only get so long to answer so equations with 5 or 6 variables should be allowed more time to work out.

@Agus Mei I'm with you, to win challenges I always have a calculator because without it I don't have time to complete them. I think there is too much math in challenges and much less code.

I don't mind saying LESS. As i am not too bad at maths 😜
