Exercises
  1. If the two 1/2 values are used as separate road sign numbers (i.e. the road sign numbers are 1, 2, 0.5, 17, 0.5, and 20), decide if the road sign still contains basic arithmetic.

  2. Assume the slash is a number separator. Now the numbers in the roadsign are 1, 2, 1, 2, 17, 1, 2, 20. Do some math.
