### BARS::Street Signs In The Maple Ash Neighborhood Of Tempe

TempeHiker was walking Blaze the dog in the Maple Ash neighborhood of Tempe, Arizona. While walking south on S. Ash Avenue, he noticed that some of the street signs contained arithmetic.

```   W 10th St 100  ->
S Ash Ave <- 1000

10 x 100 = 1000

W 11th St 100  ->
S Ash Ave <- 1100

11 x 100 = 1100

W 12th St 100  ->
S Ash Ave <- 1200

12 x 100 = 1200
```

After documenting TempeHiker's find, we wondered if the three street signs treated as a single sign still contained arithmetic.

```   The three street sign contain the following numbers.
----------------------------------------------------
10, 11, 12, 100, 100, 100, 1000, 1100, 1200

(10 + 11 + 12) * (100/100) * 100 = 1000 + 1100 + 1200

33       *     1     * 100 =     2100 + 1200

33           * 100 =        3300

3300      =        3300
```
