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 = 101^{2}= 101 x 101 = 10,201 sqrt(10201) = 101 if pow(base, exponent) function used, the math is: sqrt(pow(101, 2)) = 101
