Here is the AZ law that governs your issue:

"A mistake of only one of the parties to a contract in the expression of his agreement or as to the subject matter does not affect its binding force and ordinarily affords no ground for its avoidance, or for relief, even in equity." Nationwide Resources Corp. v. Massabni, 134 Ariz. 557, 564-65, 658 P.2d 210, 217-18 (App. 1982). A party will be relieved from an agreement based on unilateral mistake only if the other party knew of and unfairly took advantage of the other party's error. Georgia-Pacific Corp. v. Levitz, 149 Ariz. 120, 122, 716 P.2d 1057, 1059 (App. 1986).
