    $\begingroup$ Edit it to improve it. Don't delete it. For more details about how you can improve the question, see How to ask a good question on Math.SE $\endgroup$ – amWhy Nov 16 '20 at 17:35

    $\begingroup$ The main reason you should try to save the question is because having deleted and/or net downvoted questions (much worse if both) contributes to an eventual question ban. $\endgroup$ – Matt Samuel Nov 16 '20 at 17:50
