Milepost 178 on the Beeline Highway in Arizona

A MAT102@SCC student alerted me that there was a sign containing the numbers 1, 7, and 8 on the westside of the Beeline Highway just north of McDowell Road. I drove to this spot while on my way to SCC and came across this milepost.

Although the number is 178, the student observed three separate numbers that added up nicely.

   +------+
   | Mile |
   |  1   |
   |  7   |
   |  8   |
   +------+

   the numbers are:  1  7  8
   
   the math is:  1 + 7 = 8
