W 1st St 1900 S 52nd St 100 W Rio Salado Pkwy 1800 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.
