This road sign was taken in New York City by Fela.

The sign says...

+----------+ | Exit 4 | | 14 Ave | | Bay 8 St | | 1/4 Mile | +----------+the numbers are: 4 8 14 1/4 the math is: 8 * sqrt(1/4) = sqrt(sqrt(4) + 14) observe... left-side: sqrt(1/4) = 1/2 8 * 1/2 = 4 right-side: sqrt(4) = 2 14 + 2 = 16 sqrt(16) = 4This road sign could not be submitted to RoadSignMath.com because it contains fractions; however, fractions are allowed in a BARS (Basic Arithmetic Road Sign).

MathBabbler says "Thank You" to Fela for the picture.

## Update::2009.02.20

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #6 of the spring 2009 semester.

the numbers are: 4 8 14 (1/4) the math is: sqrt(8 * (1/4) + 14) = 4 rs42Eval: 4! + 14 + 8 * sqrt(1/4) = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" more math: 14 - 8 - sqrt(4) = reciprocal(1/4) rsPiString: string_to_number("sqrt(8 + 1/4 * 4).14") = 3.14 * 3.14 is Pi (3.14159265...) rounded to nearest hundredth [solve for 'n'] sqrt(8 * (1/4) + n) = 4
