### BARS::Parking Meter 49 Two-Hour Parking in Tempe, Arizona

This parking sign was found in a parking lot located in between downtown Tempe and ASU.

The parking sign says...

```   +---------------------------+
|       PARKING             |
| Note your space number    |
| Pay at meter 49           |
| Pay Parking               |
| 8 am-6 pm                 |
| except Sundays & Holidays |
+---------------------------+
|     2 Hour Parking        |
+---------------------------+
```
```   the numbers are:  49  6  8  2

the math is:  sqrt(49) = (6 + 8) / 2

off-by-one math:  6 * 8 + 2 = 49 (+ 1)

No or Yes:  8am - 6pm = 2 hours
```

TempeHiker feels a tinge of excitement when square numbers are found on signs. The square number in this sign was 49 and TempeHiker was 7-squared years in age when he found this parking sign.

TempeHiker re-visited this parking lot on Martin Luther King Day 2008 and he noticed the that allowed parking time had been changed from two hours to 80 minutes.
