BARS::Absolute Value of 6 Feet Minus 11 Inches Equals 5 MPH

[5mph; 11" 6"]

This picture, which is of the front of a parking lot structure on W. Adams St. in downtown Phoenix, contains a prime number (5) speed limit sign. If units of measurements are ingored, the collection of numbers contain basic arithmetic.

   |6 - 11| = 5

The following is derived if we include units of measurement.

   |6' - 11''| = 5mph

   in other words...

   the absolute value of six feet minus 11 inches
   equals five miles-per-hour

TempeHiker went up to the top floor of the parking structure and took the following pictures.
