BARS::South-Side Arrivals at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, Arizona

These airport signs were located at Sky Harbor Intl. Airport (west-bound arrivals on the south-side) in Phoenix, Arizona.

The airport signs say...

   the numbers are:  2  3  17  24  4  10  44  143  153  202

   set the sign on the left equal-to the sign on the right

   the math is:  24 - 17 - 3 - 2 = sqrt(202 - 44 - 4 - (153 - 143)) - 10

   re-write in BARS standard form "expr = value"...

   17 + 3 + 2 + sqrt(202 - 44 - 4 - (153 - 143)) - 10 = 24
More About These Signs

It took three tries to get these signs to become BARS.

TempeHiker first saw these signs while picking up his daughter at the airport. Upon returning home, he did not recall having seen the numbers 2 and 17; therefore, the following math ended up being moot.

   the numbers are:  3  24  143  153  202  10  44  4

   the math is:  (153 - 143 - 4) / (202 - (10 x (44 - 24)) = 3

These signs cannot be submitted to RoadSignMath.com because they are on separate polls; thus, from RSM's perspective, we have two separate signs.
