This road sign was found at the junction of Forest Road 504 and AZ Hwy-260, one mile west of Heber, Arizona.

The sign says...

+----------------------+ | <- Heber 1 | | <- State Hwy. 260 -> | | Payson 52 -> | +----------------------+ | 504 | | end | +-----+ the numbers are: 1 260 52 504 the math is: (504 + 1) 505 ---------- = --- = 1.61858974 (260 + 52) 312 the golden ratio = 1.61803399Our result (

`1.618`

) is 'phi' truncated to the thousandths[exercises] 1) evaluate lcm(260, 504) 2) evaluate gcf(260, 504) 3) approximate sqrt(52) 4) no or yes. 1 is a prime number## BAB Content Prior to BARS Analysis

The top portion of the road sign approximates a rectangle.

The "504 End" portion looks like a square made out of two equally sized rectangles.

Beyond the sign I think there is a diamond-shaped sign warning us about an upcoming octagon-shaped stop sign.
