Pizza Hut Is Giving Out 3.14 Years of Free Pizza on Pi Day… If You Can Do Some Complex Math

Pizza Hut enlisted a Princeton professor to write three math problems: If you can solve them, you get 3.14 years of free pizza

Doing math for pizza on Pi Day may sound crazy, but it’s not irrational.

Gentlemen (and ladies), start your calculators! This Pi Day (March 14), you could be the lucky recipient of 3.14 years of free Pizza Hut. Is your mouth watering yet? You’ll have to be a math whiz to win this coveted prize.

Pizza Hut has enlisted the help of Princeton’s Professor Emeritus John H. Conway to create three math problems, ranging in difficulty from high school to Ph.D. level.If you’re the first to answer all three correctly, you’ll win that 3.14 years-worth of pizza (If our math is correct, that works out to about $1,600 worth of stuffed-crust contentment).

The questions will go live on Pizza Hut’s blog at 8 a.m. on Monday, March 14. Contestants will have until midnight that evening to complete the test and provide possible answers in the blog’s comment section.


“Pi may be irrational, but free pizza is anything but,” Conway said in a statement. “I’m eager to challenge America with these problems and find the next great pizza-loving mathematician that can solve them.”
