BARS::John F. Kennedy International Airport

These airport signs are located at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. [Picture by Fela.]

The airport signs say...

   +-----------+   +-------+
   |   8    9  |   | 5 6 7 |
   | Left Exit |   |   |   |
   |     |     |   |   v   |
   |     v     |   +-------+
   +-----------+


   the numbers are:  5  6  7  8  9

   the math is:  summation(6, 8) - summation(5, 7) = sqrt(9)

   observe...
      summation(6, 8) = 6 + 7 + 8 = 21
      summation(5, 7) = 5 + 6 + 7 = 18
      21 - 18 = 3
      sqrt(9) = 3

   ...or...
   
   6 / sqrt(sqrt(9 + 7)) + 5 = 8

   observe...
      9 + 7 = 16
      sqrt(16) = 4
      sqrt(4) = 2
      6 / 2 = 3
      3 + 5 = 8

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