Recently, I wondered what the algorithm for the placement of floats in TeX is. So I searched this site for "float placement algorithm" and did not find a suitable question - at least not directly. While starting to write my question, I noticed two questions that were suggested as related and came somewhat closer to what I was looking for and, finally, in one of these questions I found a link to How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX?.
Ok, so I found the answer that I was looking for, but I guess other people might also try the search phrase I used and maybe give up their search before arriving at the existing question and answer. So my question in such a situation is:
Should I ask an existing question in different words (and directly flag it as a duplicate) to improve the findability of the existing question?
As an alternative, I could of course also edit the existing question and add alternative formulations, but I guess that could easily flood the post and distract from the actual content of the question.
