BARS::Cortez and Willis Streets in Prescott, Arizona

These street signs are at the corner of Cortez and Willis Streets in Prescott, Arizona.

The street signs say...

   +---------------------+
   | W Willis St 100 <-- |
   | N Cortez St 200 <-- |
   | E Willis St 100 --> |
   +---------------------+
   the numbers are:  100  100  200

   the math is:  100 + 100 = 200

   base-2 math:  200 / 100 = sqrt(1002)

   observe...
      100 in base-2 is 4

   [solve for 'n']  n + 100 = 200

The Willis and Cortez street signs were at a 4-way stop.

   +---------------------+
   | W Willis St 100 <-- |
   | N Cortez St 200 <-- |
   | E Willis St 100 --> |
   +---------------------+
   |     STOP  4-way     |
   +---------------------+
   the numbers are:  100  200  100  4

   the math is:  200 / (sqrt(100) * sqrt(100)) = sqrt(4)

   observe...
      sqrt(100) = 10
      sqrt(4) = 2

   [solve for 'n']  n / (sqrt(100) * sqrt(100)) = sqrt(4)
