BARS::Arizona Museum of Natural History 1 Hour Parking in Mesa, Arizona

This parking sign is in the parking lot at the Arizona Museum of Natural History in Mesa, Arizona.

The parking sign says...

   +------------------+
   |  1 Hour Parking  |
   | 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. |
   | Sundays excepted |
   +------------------+
   the numbers are:  1  8  8

   the math is:  1 * 8 = 8

   more math:  8^1 = 8

   more math:  (8 - 8)! = 1

   more math:  reciprocal(1/8) = 8

   off-by-one math:  sqrt(1 + 8) = cuberoot(8) + 1

   off-by-one math:  defactorial(sqrt(summation(1, 8))) = cuberoot(8) + 1

   observe...
      summation(1, 8) = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8 = 36
      sqrt(36) = 6
      defactorial(6) = 3
