These road signs were found on westbound US Hwy-60 in Mesa, Arizona.

The road signs say...

--------+ +---------------+ +-----------+ +-----------+ 2+ | | Exit 175 | | Exit 176A | | Exit 176B | LY | | McClintock Dr | | 101 South | | 101 North | mon-fir | | 1 Mile | | 3/4 Mile | | Exit Only | --------+ +---------------+ +-----------+ +-----------+ the numbers are: 2 175 1 176 101 3/4 176 101 the math is: sqrt((175 - 101) - sqrt(101 - (176/176))) * (1 - 3/4) = 2 observe... 175 - 101 = 74 101 - 176/176 = 101 - 1 = 100 sqrt(100) = 10 74 - 10 = 64 sqrt(64) = 8 1 - 3/4 = 1/4 8 * 1/4 = 2 fooish math: (176 - 176) x (2 + 1 + 175 + 3/4) + 101 = 101 more square roots: sqrt(sqrt((175 - 101) - sqrt(101 - (176/176))) * sqrt((1 - 3/4))) = 2The left-side of this picture contains a partial HOV sign. This missing part of the HOV sign contains the numbers 6, 9, 3 and 7. The missing part looks something like the following.

+------------+ | 6am to 9am | | 3pm to 7pm | +------------+

`[Exercise]`

Find math using the two 2's from above along with the four additional numbers found in the missing part of the HOV sign.the numbers are: 2 2 6 9 3 7 the math is: ???## Fooish Math?

I am still in the process of defining "fooish math." When finding math in BARS (Basic Arithmetic Road Signs), avoid the following.

multiply by zero divide a number by itself raise 1 to a power use 0 as an exponentThe following are okay.

0! = 1 to turn a zero into a one log(10) = 1 to turn a ten into a one
