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(100_{2}) observe... 100 in base-2 is 4 [solve for 'n'] n + 100 = 200The 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)
