                                                    +-------------+

   the numbers are:  6  9  3  7  202  10  5  143  (1 1/4)  6  (1/4)

   the math is:  
   sqrt(202 - 143 - 10) - sqrt(6 + 9 + 3 + 7 + 5 + 6) + (1/4) = 1 1/4

   [exericse] solve for x:
   sqrt(202 - 143 - 10) - sqrt(6 + 9 + 3 + 7 + 5 + 6) + x = 1 1/4

TempeHiker got a better picture of these signs on 7 May 2011. Upon updating this BARS, he noticed that the white "car pools" sign had been replaced with a white "HOV" sign that contained an additional number (the number two). Different numbers resulted in the creation of BARS::Exits 5 and 6 Again on Westbound Loop 202 in Tempe, Arizona.
