This road sign is on southbound Forrest Road 618 at its junction with AZ Hwy-260 in Arizona.

The road sign says...

+---------------------+ | Hwy 260 | | Clear Creek C.G. 1 | | Camp Verde 5 | +---------------------+the numbers are: 260 1 5 off-by-one rsAgeEval: 260 / 5 - 1 = 51 - 1 * RoadHacker found this road sign on his next to last day of being 50 years young. rsAgeEval: 260 / 5 - 1 = 51 * MathBabbler was 51 years young when he finally got around to turing this sign into a BARS. within 1% of a rsPhiEval: [Phi = 1.61803399] (1 + sqrt(5)) / sqrt(sqrt(sqrt(260))) = 1.61490124 = 1.615 rs42Eval: (260 / 5 * 1)_{8}= 42 observe... 260 / 5 * 1 = 52 52 in base-8 is 5 * 8 + 2 * 1 = 42 split_into_squares_sum(260) = { 144, 100, 16 } apply square-roots to the square numbers... the numbers become: 1 5 12 10 4 the math is: 5 - 4 + 1 + 10 = 12 Phi math: (1 + sqrt(5)) / (10 + 4 - 12) = Phi (3.61803399) Pi math: (12 + 10) / (1 * (5 + sqrt(4))) = Pi (3.14) more math: 12 + 10 + sqrt(5 - 1) = 4! more math: log(sqrt(12 * 10 - 5 * 4)) = 1
