### Re: Expectation

It is kinda nice.

But I am currently more excited about something else.

### Re: Expectation

What would that be?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.

Last Saturday was the Serbian Republic competition in mathematics. I got a third place award and I am going to the Serbian Mathematical Olympiad.

I think combinatorics. And then number theory.

### Re: Expectation

I don't like it much. I just get ideas faster than in other 3 topics that are included in the competition.

Actually, sorry. I get ideas slower in the 2 other topics, analysis and geometry.

In combinatorics I get ideas the fastest.
