I have got a detailed explanation for a complex mathematical problem taken from a different site. Can I refer it here and ask whether any more methods are there to solve the same problem. Is this allowed as per rules for this community.

    $\begingroup$ It would be best if you can provide enough context so that people don't have to leave MSE to understand your question (although of course you should link to the other content). That's really the only danger here, that the question might not be "self-contained" enough. Your question certainly sounds valid and mathematical. $\endgroup$ – pjs36 Mar 13 '16 at 20:26

I think that the answer should relate to the topic a lot, but still be able to hold its own weight. However, you should still include the link to the other website.
