As it happens, someone else (called MATHEMATICIAN) has solved the current problem on its original page.

I am not sure whether it is good to always post a new thread after every 2 pages. 7 pages are enough to me.

Keep it simple: one thread per puzzle...then nobody gets mixed up...

I think we've already established that everyone has different preferences. (I don't like to clog the forum with all these threads, so I'd rather see them go on for 10 or 20 pages.) Didn't we decide that the question-poser gets to choose whether to start a new thread or not?

Re: Math Q&A challenge (Part 11)

Me too , i'd rather see long threads. Had we kept a single thread for this it probably would be the thread with the most views and most replies at MMF so far.
