Why does mathoverflow encourage only "research-level" questions while stack overflow encourages "all-level" questions?
I understand that the two communities seem to have different mentalities towards the sophistication level of questions and I am trying to understand why.
It seems weird to me that someone cannot ask something trivial like "how I multiply two numbers together?" on
stackoverflow someone can/did ask "How do I make a for loop in python?" ( equally as trivial as multiplying two numbers together )
Why is the stackexchange
mathematics community against simple/googleable questions, while the stackexchange
software community is not?
