This parking sign was found in front of the Post Office in Alliance, Nebraska.

The parking sign says...

+----------------+ | 12 Min Parking | | 8am - 6pm | | Mon - Fri | | 8am - 9pm | | Sat - Hol | +----------------+the numbers are: 12 8 6 8 9 the math is: 6^sqrt(sqrt(8 + 8)) / sqrt(9) = 12 observe... 8 + 8 = 16 sqrt(16) = 4 sqrt(4) = 2 6^2 = 36 sqrt(9) = 3 36 / 3 = 12 more math: (12 - 9)! - 6 + 8 = 8 observe... 12 - 9 = 3 3! = 3 * 2 * 1 = 6 6 - 6 = 0 0 + 8 = 8 more math: sqrt(8 / sqrt(12 - 8)) * sqrt(9) = 6 observe... 12 - 8 = 4 sqrt(4) = 2 8 / 2 = 4 sqrt(4) = 2 sqrt(9) = 3 2 * 3 = 6 more math: 8^reciprocal(12 - 9) + 6 = 8 observe... 12 - 9 = 3 reciprocal(3) = 1/3 8^(1/3) = cuberoot(8) = 2## Update::2009.04.03

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #11 of the spring 2009 semester.

the numbers are: 12 8 6 8 9 rsAgeEval: 8 * 6 + 12 - 9! / 8! = 51 * MathBabbler was 52 years young when he found this equation rs42Eval: summation(9, 12) * (6 / cuberoot(8) - cuberoot(8)) = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" * observe... summation(9, 12) = 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 = 42 more math: 8 - 6 = log(12 * 9 - 8) more math: avg(6, sqrt(12 * 9 - 8)) = 8 more math: 8 / (12 / sqrt(9)) + 6 = 8 more math: sqrt(12 / (9 / (6 / cuberoot(8)))) = cuberoot(8) number system math: ((12 * 8 - 6) / 9)_{8}= 8
