BARS::Equivalent Road Signs on AZ Hwy-260 West in Arizona

This road sign and this road sign, which are about twenty yards apart, are on westbound AZ Hwy-260 in Arizona.

The equivalent road signs say...

   the 1st road sign

   +----------------+
   | Cottonwood  15 |
   | Clarkdale   16 |
   | Jerome      22 |
   +----------------+

   about 20 yards further west

   +----------------------+
   | Dead Horse St Pk  15 |
   | Tuzigoot Natl Mon 16 |
   | Jerome St Pk      22 |
   +----------------------+
   the numbers are:  15  16  22  15  16  22

   the equivalent math is:  15 + 16 + 22 = 15 + 16 + 22

   rsAgeEval:  22 + 16 + 15 - sqrt(15 + 16 - 22) = 50

   looking for math using only one sign...

   off-by-one Pi math:  (22 * sqrt(sqrt(16)) / (15 - 1) = Pi
   
   observe...
      sqrt(16) = 4
      sqrt(4) = 2
      22 * 2 = 44
      44 / 14 approximates Pi (3.14)

   off-by-one Pi math:  22 / (sqrt((sqrt(16)! - 15))! + 1) = Pi

   observe...
      sqrt(16) = 4
      4! = 24
      24 - 15 = 9
      sqrt(9) = 3
      3! = 6
      22 / 7 approximates Pi (3.14)
