This road sign is on the Hawaiian Island of Oahu.

Note: This road sign was discovered by SCC student Lindsay during the fall 2008 semester and the dot-jpg was given to MathBabbler on 7 October 2008.

The road sign says...

+---------------------------+ | Mililani Tech Park 1/2 | | Wheeler AAF 1/2 | | Wahiawa 2 | +---------------------------+the numbers are: 1/2 1/2 2 fooish (trivial) math: sqrt((1/2)^2) = 1/2 more fooish math: sqrt(reciprocal(2 / 1/2)) = 1/2 observe... 2 / 1/2 = 4 reciprocal(4) = 1/4 sqrt(1/4) = sqrt(1)/sqrt(4) = 1/2 more fooish math: sqrt(reciprocal(1/2 * 1/2)) = 2 observe... 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4 reciprocal(1/4) = 4 sqrt(4) = 2 [solve for 'n'] ((1/2)^n)^(1/2) = 1/2
