Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, has been doing quite well in the smartphone market. One aspect of its business that attracts customers is its pricing. A few months ago, the company released its latest flagship series, Xiaomi Mi 10 series. Today, Xiaomi took to its official Weibo handle to post a price cut for the Xiaomi Mi 10. Well, it did not outrightly announce the price cut. Rather, the company left its users with some puzzle to solve. Referring to the Xiaomi Mi 10 (8GB+256GB & 12GB+256GB versions), the Weibo post reads “If you want to buy the Xiaomi Mi 10, wait for the surprise at 10 o’clock tomorrow morning. A simple math problem notice, come and see the comments section Guess”.
This question involves limits, logarithms, trigonometric functions, etc. Nevertheless, the solution is not complex. The result of the solution is 300. Obviously, the two versions of Xiaomi Mi 10 will get a 300 yuan ($42) price cut tomorrow. This will be the first-ever official price cut that the Xiaomi Mi 10 is getting. Although, there have been price cuts for this smartphone from online flagship stores and other outlets. However, this will be the first that is coming directly from Xiaomi.
