BARS::Heading East On I-40 To Winslow, Arizona

This road sign was taken from the car while driving I-40 east to Winslow, Arizona.

The sign says...

   +------------------------+
   |      Winslow Exits     |
   +------------------------+
   | Hipkoe Dr        2     |
   | North Park Dr    3 1/4 |
   | Transcon Ln      5 1/4 |
   +------------------------+
   the numbers are:  2  (3 1/4)  (5 1/4)

   the math is:  2 + (3 1/4) = 5 1/4

This road sign was not submitted to RoadSignMath.com because they don't accept signs with fractions.

Assume the slash is used a delimiter.

   the numbers are:  2  3  5  1  4  1  4

   the math is:  2 + 3 + 5 - 1 - 4 - 1 = 4
Update::2009.09.11

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #4 of the fall 2009 semester.

   the numbers are:  2  (3 1/4)  (5 1/4)

   the math is:  2 + floor(3 1/4) = floor(5 1/4)

   more math:  2 + ceil(3 1/4) = ceil(5 1/4)
