# Knowing why a question was closed

I'd like to know why this question: Using Baire Category Theorem to prove $\mathbb{R}^2\not\cong\mathbb{R}^3$. was closed. I thought it was very interesting and I really want to see a prove of it!

In this scenarios, is there a place to know exactly why was a question closed?

• Thanks @GEdgar. – Jonas Gomes Oct 15 '14 at 14:38

• @JonasGomes It was closed because there's no context. Also, "what I tried" $\subseteq$ "context." That is, there are other ways of providing context besides attempted solutions; for example, one could describe techniques that solved similar problems yet cannot solve this problem. – apnorton Oct 12 '14 at 21:48
