Restaurant Requires Customers to Solve Math Equation for Wi-Fi Access

Calling all math whizzes: Can you solve this equation?
Math Equation

Hundreds of Reddit users are trying to solve this equation in a Good Will Hunting fashion.

A San Antonio Thai restaurant, Yaya, will let you use its Wi-Fi for free, but only if you can solve an impossible math equation.

Reddit user “Joshua_Glock” posted a picture of the restaurant’s handwritten Wi-Fi equation this past weekend, but no one has been able to connect to the network yet, First We Feast reported.

The Reddit community has been in a frenzy trying to solve the equation.  

“This looks a lot like a summation of a binomial probability density function,” one Reddit user wrote. “I strongly doubt the divider between N/m should even be there.”

After receiving more than 400 comments, Reddit user “Joshua_Glock” claimed to have revisited the restaurant again and again to test out new suggestions.


This isn’t the first time a restaurant has stumped its customers with a math equation. This past summer, a photo of a Beijing restaurant’s menu went viral because it listed complex math equations where the price should have been, making customers solve the equations to determine the costs of their bills.
