These street signs were seen on a card found in a Fry's grocery store in Tempe, Arziona.

The street signs say...

+-----------------------+ | No Parking 6pm to 2am | +-----------------------+ +----------------+ +-----------------+ | 2 Hour Parking | | NO PARKING | | 8am - 6pm | | Freight Zone | +----------------+ | 30 Minute Limit | | Enforced 24 Hrs | | By Permit Only | +-----------------+ +------------+ | No Parking | | Saturday | | 2am - 7am | | Sunday | | 2am - 7am | +------------+the numbers are: 6 2 2 8 6 30 24 2 7 2 7 A = sqrt(7 * 7) = 7 B = sqrt(30 * 2 + 2 + 2) = 8 C = sqrt(24 + 6 / 6) = 5 D = sqrt(8 * 2) = 4 the math is: A - C = B / D 7 - 5 = 8 / 4 rsPhiEval: ((B - A) + sqrt(C)) / sqrt(D) = Phi ((8 - 7) + sqrt(5)) / sqrt(4) = Phi * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399 rsPiEval: ((C * D) + cuberoot(B)) / A = Pi ((5 * 4) + cuberoot(8)) / 7 = Pi * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth more math: log(30-24+6+6-8) + sqrt((2*2*2*2)-7)! = 7 A = (8!/(7!/6!)!)!/(7!/6!)! = 8 the numbers become: A 24 30 2 2 2 2 8 24 30 2 2 2 2 rsAgeEval: 24 + 30 - 8 / 2 + 2 + 2 - 2 = 52 * MathBabbler was 52 years young when he found this card. rsStateEval: 24 + 30 - 8 + 2 / 2 + 2 / 2 = 48 * The card with the street signs was found in Arizona and Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union. rs42Eval: 30 + 8 + 24 / (2 + 2) - sqrt(2 + 2) = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" rsPiEval: (30 - 8) / ((24 / 2 / 2) + 2 / 2) = Pi * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth rsPhiEval: (2 / 2 + sqrt(30 - 24 - 2 / 2)) / cuberoot(8) = Phi * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399
