My prefix is an endless path

That has a lot of crazy math

My infix is appearing here

Multiple times in this riddle near

My suffix is a word kids dislike

Since they won't be able to entertain their psyche

Put them together and you'll see why

I want you to deduce... what am I?

P.S. Shout out to Cubemaster for introducing me to these kinds of riddles

This should clear things up

It is a musical instrument, I'll try to give better clues in the next Riley Riddle

  • $\begingroup$ Shoot, I messed up on the infix, since I don't have a good understanding of what an infix is. Focus on the prefix and suffix, then find the missing letter $\endgroup$ – Xavier Stanton Aug 14 '18 at 1:46
  • $\begingroup$ I think the infix is also known as the postfix, particularly when coding, or something. All these, the prefixes and suffixes and infixes are altogether known as affixes or rarely, morphemes (like how $1,2,3,4,\ldots$ are known as the (natural, counting) numbers). You can go here for some detailed information. Regarding the "postfix" idea, you can go here if you are interested :) $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Aug 14 '18 at 11:08

    $\begingroup$ I looked with the infix is, seems to be a "word in a word" of sorts $\endgroup$ – Xavier Stanton Aug 15 '18 at 2:37

I think you are

"ORDEAL"

My prefix is an endless path

O looks like a circle and a circle is an endless path

That has a lot of crazy math

O also looks like zero, and there is a whole mathematic science behind the digit zero

My infix is appearing here

ORDEAL and here

Multiple times in this riddle near

Well I got this one from Eutherpy: multiple R 's in the title

My suffix is a word kids dislike

Since they won't be able to entertain their psyche

This could be the part where my answer don't fit, because ORDEAL is the whole word and not just the suffix. But the meaning could fit: suffer, trouble

Could you be

a PIERCING?

My prefix is an endless path

PI - Pi has infinite digits

That has a lot of crazy math

Each digit of Pi has to be calculated, and you must be crazy to try to define Pi exactly (no offense :P).

R - most words in title start with 'R' (credits to eutherpy)

My suffix is a word kids dislike
Since they won't be able to entertain their psyche

SING - I must admit this is quite far-fetched. Children do not listen to the meaning of songs, they more or less just sing along. (again, no offense). Adults are more prone to look deeper into the lyrics and like to interpret it somehow, thereby 'entertaining their psyche'.

Put them together and you'll see why
I want you to deduce... what am I?

put together it spells "PIRSING", and after some real hard thinking and using my extraterrestrial deduction abilities I saw that it looks and sounds like PIERCING. Problem is, the same deduction abilities tell me that this is not the right solution. After the first two parts I had "PIR" but "ATE" did not work for the suffix part, neither did "ANHA". So i had to be inventive - but hey the question is tagged wordplay so I thought lets play a bit ^^.
