BARS::Speed Limit Signs at Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico

Note: This is not a conventional BARS (Basic Arithmetic Road Sign). MathBabbbler collects prime numbered speed limit signs and that is why the picture used in this BARS was taken; however, beyond the 5 MPH sign is a 25 MPH sign and MathBabbler realized that 25 was 5-squared.

These speed limit signs are at Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico.

The speed limit signs say...

   diamond sign:  5 MPH
   rectangle sign:  25 MPH
   the numbers are:  5   25

   the math is:  sqrt(25) = 5
