BARS::Hours at the Scottsdale Public Libary in Arizona

This hours sign is at the Scottsdale Public Library-Civic Center Library located in downtown Scottsdale, Arizona. MathBabbler saw the sign when he attended the Scottsdale Science Cafe on 18 March 2014.

The hours sign says...

   +--------------------+
   |    Library Hours   |
   | Mon-Thurs  9am-9pm |
   | Fri-Sat   10am-6pm |
   | Sunday     1pm-5pm |
   +--------------------+
   the numbers are:  9  9  10  6  1  5

   the math is:  10 + 6 + sqrt(5 - 1) - 9 = 9

   more math:  9 * (log(10) + 1 + 5 - 6) = 9

   rsAgeEval:  (10! / 9!) / 9! * 6 + 1 - 5 = 56
   * MathBabbler was 56 years young when he found this equation.

   rsStateEval:  9 + 9 - 10 * sqrt(6 * (1 + 5)) = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   rs42Eval:  6 * 5 + 10 + 1 + 9 / 9 = 42
   rs42Eval:  6 * 10 - 5 - 1 - 9 - sqrt(9) = 42
   rs42Eval:  (9 + 9 + 10) / (5 - 1) * 6 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rs37Eval:  9 + sqrt(9)! + 10 + 6 + 1 + 5 = 37
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   rsCardinalityEval:  sqrt(9 - 5) + sqrt(10 - 6) + sqrt(9) - 1 = 6
   rsCardinalityEval:  sqrt(9 - 5) + sqrt(10 - 6) + cuberoot(9 - 1) = 6
   rsCardinalityEval:  mode(sqrt(9), 9, 10, 6, (1 + 5)) = 6
   * There are six numbers in this sign.

   rsPiEval:  (10 * sqrt(9) - 5 - sqrt(9)) / (6 + 1) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)
   * 3.14159265358979323846264338327950

   rsPhiEval:  (1 + sqrt(5)) / (sqrt(10 - 6) * 9 / 9) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399
