Lightbulb Please help me find decent math journals

Hello,

I've recently discovered my own proof of the irrationality of √2, and haven't found anything similar online. Obviously, it's nothing too revolutionary, but It would be kinda cool to get it published. Unfortunately, I'm a teenage amateur in the field and have a limited understanding of who I should reach out to. I was thinking you guys could help me out by suggesting math journals that might be interested in this sort of thing. The proof isn't too long and could be understood by a sixth grader.

Look for journals that publish expositional papers (as opposed to new research). MAA is the place to start.

Periodicals | Mathematical Association of America

You can publish online at Arxiv, which I gather is taken seriously, or Vixra, which isn't.

https://arxiv.org/

viXra.org open e-Print archive

Sorry I can't suggest any specific journals.

If you post it here you'll still have your priority and we can all chew it over. You could try us out as an editorial board

Would it be fine if I did all of the above in that exact order?

That was a set of suggestions, not an ordered list

I'm curious if that has ever happened before.

This is the first time I've heard of Vixra haha. What's the nature of the site?

Edit: Wow, they make my field a top-level heading along with archaeology whereas the rest of the rest of the humanities and social sciences are cramped under the header 'Social Science'... that's a first. Usually we're just ignored...
Thanks from Joppy
