I'll just put this out here. This is a sock my main account is Avnish Kabaj and user619072(now deleted sock).
I've asked a couple of questions as to why my method is wrong. For some reason, users keep on providing an alternative solution.That always defeats the purpose of the question. I never get to learn what's wrong with my thinking and whatever bungled up math concepts I'm using remain bungled up.
Why does this happen? Am I framing my questions incorrectly? Do users not like questions where I want my method to be corrected? A couple of hours ago I asked a question and wrote clearly at the top that I'm not after the answer.
I got two answers none of which provided as to why was my method incorrect. It's not that I don't appreciate the answers I've learnt lots of cool ways at looking at math and neat tricks which I could have never discovered on my own.
It's just that I asked for an orange but got an apple instead, apples are tasty but aren't oranges.
