MathBabbler has not been able to find any math in this road sign; therefore, he used the spf(n) function to morph non-prime numbers into prime numbers. spf(n) equals the sum of the prime factors for n.

   the numbers are:  17  8  49  134
   
   the math is:  A = spf(spf(spf(spf(spf(spf(spf(134))))))) = 5
                 B = spf(spf(8)) = 5

   A + B + sqrt(49) = 17
   5 + 5 +    7     = 17

   observe...
      spf(134) = 69    [2 + 67]
      spf(69) = 26     [3 + 23]
      spf(26) = 15     [3 + 13]
      spf(15) = 8      [3 + 5]
      spf(8) = 6       [2 + 2 + 2]
      spf(6) = 5       [2 + 3]
