### BARS::Street Signs on a Card in Tempe, Arizona

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
