These muralized road signs are in Twentynine Palms, California.

The muralized road sign says...

   +------------------------+
   | Post Office     1  --> |
   | Hotel Adobe     2      |
   | <-- Pinto Basin        |
   +------------------------+
   +-------------------+
   | Banning    58 --> |
   | <-- ????????   23 |   ??? is it Beaumont?
   |     Amboy      49 |
   +-------------------+
   the numbers are:  1  2  58  23  49

   the math is:  58 / 2 - 23 + 1 = sqrt(49)

   the Pi math is:  (23 - 1) / (58 - 49 - 2) = Pi (3.14)

   observe...
        Pi = 3.141592654
      22/7 = 3.142857143
      Pi rounded to the nearest hundreth is 3.14
      22 / 7 rounded to the nearest hundreth is 3.14
