We often go to restaurants or the nearby coffee shops not for their food, but for the free Wi-Fi internet they provide. No matter how bad their food is, we don’t mind if we get their Wi-Fi password. Even the restaurants give their passwords willingly to attract more customers, no wonder it boosts their own business.
However, there’s a restaurant in San Antonio, Texas, called YaYa’s Thai restaurant where you won’t get the Wi-Fi password just like that. According to a photo that Joshua Glock posted into Reddit, you really have to be a math nerd to get their password.
Solve math for Wi-Fi password?
Customers have to solve a tricky math equation whose answer is the restaurant’s Wi-Fi password. When Joshua posted the photo and asked for help, there were some mixed responses. Some of them were puzzled; some claimed to solve the equation, while others claimed to find an error in it. Also, many people addressed it as a binomial probability density function, saying that the (N/m) on the right-hand side should be (n choose m).
Well, not everyone was serious about this equation. There are some funny comments saying that it’s a troll or the restaurants actually have no passwords.
So, what do you think? You’re most welcome if you want to give it a try. Even if you’re not good at math, you may consider yourself doing some math practices next time you visit a restaurant only to use their free Wi-Fi.
