BARS::US Hwy-180 Highway Sign on Pi Day 2008 in New Mexico

This highway sign is in New Mexico.

The highway sign says...

   +------------+
   | US Hwy-180 |
   +------------+
   the number is:  180

   the Pi math is:  180° = Pi radians

   split_into_squares_sum(180) = { 100, 64, 16 }

   the numbers become:  100  64  16

   the math is:  sqrt(100) - sqrt(64) = sqrt(sqrt(16))

   observe...
      sqrt(100) = 10
      sqrt(64) = 8
      sqrt(16) = 4
      sqrt(4) = 2

   more math:  8 * sqrt(4) = 10base-16

   more math:  log(sqrt(100)) + log(sqrt(64base-16)) = sqrt(sqrt(16))

   more math:  sqrt(64 / 16) = 10base-2
