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
