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
