Lucky Candy grocery store in Bronx, New York gives you free stuff if you can solve simple math problems.

20-year-old Ahmed Alwan, who is the cashier and also the son of  owner of the store  started playing this game with customers 2 weeks ago.

Ahmed Alwan made a simple rule. He asked his customers some simple questions and if they answer correctly and quickly, the customers get 5 seconds (and a few quarters) to pick up whatever they want from the shelves for absolutely free.

Ahmed and his game went viral after he made a video of one of the customers playing and shared it on TikTok.

Ahmed who’s studying at Bronx Community College to become a pharmacist, pays for everything out of his own pocket. He said that his main concern isn’t money, but helping low-income community members save for higher priority expenses, such as rent and utilities.

Saleh Aobad, the store’s owner and Alwan’s father, said he’s “very proud” of his son.
“It’s great to see him do good and help out the community, and most importantly represent Islam,” Aobad, an immigrant from Yemen, told the media.
“It’s impacting the business in a positive way, bringing awareness and attention to the store as well as spreading positivity throughout the community.”
Many of the store’s customers are familiar faces, people Alwan has known since he was 13 and began working in the family business. Others are strangers. But they all get a fair shot at solving a math problem.
