Recently, I found a question that I believe I could answer. here But, I have what I could call a full solution here.


Can I paste the full solution? And, if no how would I give the best answer to my ability?

  • $\begingroup$ @Raphael Seemed wrong to paste just code alone. Without explaining what it does. But, I'm familiar with python than math jargon. $\endgroup$ Nov 29, 2019 at 15:56
  • $\begingroup$ If you prefer Python over "math jargon", have you considerer whether you are on the correct SE site? For posting answers, I mean. Not to discourage you, but mathematics are a central part of CS language, in the academic sense. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Raphael I'm gaining step by step. Answering questions I believe I can answer. In the meantime, I'll keep practicing code and practice algebra and pre-calculus. This site is a benefit for me (and others) to actually read source material before answering a question. (And of course, knowing that my answer is correct before posting) $\endgroup$ Nov 29, 2019 at 16:01

1 Answer 1


Some thoughts.

  1. Source code is offtopic here. You'd have to explain the idea behind and properties of the algorithm, and add pseudo code.
  2. Copy-pasting appropriate (see 1) material to Stack Exchange can be okay, if

    • it fulfills all the normal criteria for a good post,
    • no rights are infringed, and
    • the quote/copy is clearly marked as such, with attribution given.
  • $\begingroup$ Ok, I'll proof-read my code just to make sure it does what intends to do. And, I'll transform it into pseudo-code with a good explanation. $\endgroup$ Nov 29, 2019 at 15:58
