Longest solutions to typical problems.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Like - if your solution is appearing to be too long in math, you clearly realize that you're doing something wrong - as the solutions that come in the solutions manual are all short and elegant (especially so for the hard problems). We're also taught that "short and elegant" is always best. And indeed, most of the solutions I've seen at all levels are all very short, including the solutions I've seen for the International Math Olympiad.

Which then begs the question - which fields have problems with solutions that MUST be pages long? Engineering?

EDIT: I should have posted this in Academic and Career Guidance. Oh well - there might be some other insights here
