TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Nobody knows “pie” like Pizza Hut, but this March 14, Pizza Hut is dropping the “e” in honor of Pi – 3.14 – everyone’s favorite irrational number.
In partnership with mathematical genius John H. Conway, a distinguished professor of mathematics at Princeton University, and in honor of “National Pi Day” on March 14, Pizza Hut will release three math problems with a unique challenge: be the first person to solve and submit the correct answer to any one of the problems for a chance to receive 3.14 years of free pizza from Pizza Hut.
The questions are varying in level of difficulty from high school to PhD level. The problems will be posted at 8 a.m. Monday, March 14.
Math experts and Pizza Hut fans alike can visit the Hut Life blog to view the Pizza Hut Pi Day math problems on Monday. Answers must be provided within the blog comments, which will be time stamped to determine the potential winner (fans can only win once).
Pizza Hut equates 3.14 years of free pizza to approximately $1,600 in gift cards from the pizza restaurant company.
