The no dumping sign says...

+-------------------------------------------+ | NO DUMPING | | Maximum Fine $2500 | | Tempe City Code CH 28, ART. 11, Sec.28-12 | +-------------------------------------------+the numbers are: 2500 28 11 28 12 the math is: sqrt(sqrt(28 - 12)) * 11 + 28 = sqrt(2500) note... This sign would have probably been ignored if we hadn't noticed that 2500 was a square number. The square root function enabled us to turn 2500 into 50. observe... sqrt(2500) = 50 28 - 12 = 16 sqrt(16) = 4 sqrt(4) = 2 2 * 11 = 22 22 + 28 = 50
