### BARS::Seeking Pi Street Signs in Tempe, Arizona

On Friday, 3 March 2006, TempeHiker attended the groundbreaking of an "environmentally-friendly" transportation facility located at 2050 W. Rio Salado Parkway in Tempe. This facility is a joint effort between Valley Metro and the cities of Tempe and Scottsdale.

TempeHiker drove south into Tempe and parked at the Jaycee Park located at W. 5th St. and S. Hardy Ave. He hiked to the groundbreaking using the following directions.

```   W on W 5th St; N on S Beck Ave; W on W 4th St;
N on S Priest Ave; W on W 3rd St; N on Lincoln Lane
W on W 1st St; N at 52nd St/Rio Salado Pkwy connection
```

TempeHiker encountered the following street signs along the way.

The next sign... {picture}

```   1415 W. 3rd St.
Receiving

pi written to four decimal places is 3.1415
```

The next sign... {picture}

```   W 3rd St  1400

pi written to two decimal places is 3.14

3.1400 does not equal 3.1415, but it does
equal pi rounded to the nearest tenth
```

[side-bar] TempeHiker encountered a prime number speed limit sign while walking west on W. 3rd Street.

The next sign... {picture}

```   W 1st St  1900
S 52nd St  100

the numbers are: 1, 1900, 52, 100, 1800

summation(52, summation(1, sqrt(100))) + (1900 - 1800)

sqrt(100) = 10
summation(1, 10) = 55
summation(52, 55) = 214
1900 - 1800 = 100
214 + 100 = 314

If the signs had another 100, then
we could do  314/100  and get 3.14.

Here is the image with another 100 e-graffiti on the back of the stop sign.
