BARS::Loop 101 Signs on E. Baseline Road in Tempe, Arizona

These road signs are located on East Baseline Road just west of South Price Road in Tempe, Arizona.

The road signs say...

   +----------------+  +----------------+
   | Loop 101 North |  | Loop 101 South |
   |  left 2 lanes  |  |                |
   +----------------+  +----------------+

   the numbers are:  101  2  101

   the math is:  sqrt(101 ^ 2) = 101

   observe...
      101 ^ 2 = 1012 = 101 x 101 = 10,201
      sqrt(10201) = 101

   if pow(base, exponent) function used,
   the math is:  sqrt(pow(101, 2)) = 101
