### Problem vs. Solution

Sixty First Post: Problem vs. Solution

In math, engineering, the arts, etc. sometimes it is just as valuable to find a challenging problem, one that can’t be solved on first inspection, as it is to find a solution. There is a relationship between the problem and the solution. A relationship that can only be described by one working on a solution or discovering a problem.

Suppose you have an idea put no matter how you try to explain the idea or propose a solution the answer remain inconclusive. Still if the problem stills seems that it should have a possible solution or you noticed something in your attempts to find the solution, you might just have created a noteworthy problem.

The importance of a challenging problem is seen when someone solves what was thought to be impossible. Similar is the attempt of physicists to try and solve the theory of everything. A problem that couldn’t be solved with any known information, but it adds a dimension to the field that is needed. There is something about the unknown that sparks the imagination and fosters creativity.
