Are challenge-like questions like these considered on-scope in Mathematics CD?
I have this [now-deleted question](https://math.codidact.com/posts/282277) and here's what's it all about.

For every single answer, a different $y$ would be used to exponentiate $x$. The question revolves getting $x^y$ using $(x-1)^y$ and something to add at it. I already added an answer in it for $x^2$ so that when it's restored, you guys will know how it works.

I talked around in chat and they said it felt more like a challenge (something to be added at [Code Golf CD](https://codegolf.codidact.com/) instead) than a (productive) Q&A. Now that I want to make sure, are questions like these on-scope in this site?
