BARS::Street Signs on 4th Avenue in Tucson, Arizona

These street signs were found on Pi Day 2009 along 4th Avenue in Tucson, Arizona.

The street signs say...

   +----------------+
   | Speed Limit 25 |
   ------------------
   | 2 Hour Parking |
   |   8am - 5pm    |
   ------------------
   | Next 3  Blocks |
   +----------------+
   the numbers are:  25  2  8  6  3

   the math is:  (25 - 6 - 3) / 2 = 8

   rsPiEval:  (25 - 3) / ((8 + 6) / 2) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

   rsPhiEval:  ((3 - 2) + sqrt(sqrt(25))) / (8 - 6) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rs42Eval:  8 * 6 - 3 - sqrt(25) + 2 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   
   rsAgeEval:  25 * (8 - 6) + 3 - 2 = 51
   * RoadHacker was 51 years young when he found these signs

   rsHwyEval:  (25 - 6 - 3) / (8 / 2) = 4
   * These signs were found on 4th Avenue

   more math:  (8 + 6 / 3) / 2 = sqrt(25)

   more math:  (8 - 6 + 3)^2 = 25
