I had asked this question a while ago (a month or two). It has two upvotes and $37$ views as of now, thus this question hasn't gone unnoticed. But the question was active only a month ago and I haven't yet received any solutions. Would it be okay for me to repost a question in hope of receiving an answer?

No. It would be very much not okay.

You can offer a bounty, this will bump it to the front page, and offer some additional incentive for people to think about it.

If you have new information, you can also edit that in. Although editing with trivial changes more than once is likely to annoy people, so please be prudent with these sort of things, and edit actual relevant information into the question.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, I woud as well have reposted that question without asking on meta and have erred. Also, since offering bounty will attract users with high reputation, would they care to provide solution using high school maths rather than using higher level maths? $\endgroup$ Sep 9, 2020 at 10:51

    $\begingroup$ Why do you think it would attract users with high reputation? If your question asks for a specific level of solution, I also don't see why any different answer would be an appropriate answer (it could, provided that a good answer was given to your liking, but even then, it might be debatable). $\endgroup$
