BARS::51 Miles From Phoenix on Westbound I-10 in Arizona

This road sign was found on Pi Day 2009 on westbound I-10 in Arziona.

The road sign says...

   +-----------------------------+
   | AZ 287 Florence Blvd      2 |
   | AZ 387 AZ 187 North      11 |
   | Phoenix                  51 |
   +-----------------------------+
   the numbers are:  287  2  387  187  11  51

   rsPiEval:  ((387 + 187) / 287 * 11) / sqrt(51 - 2) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth
   * Note:  This road sign was found on Pi Day 2009.

   rsAgeEval:  (((387 + 187) / 2) - 287) * 11 + 51 = 51
   * RoadHacker was 51 years young when he found this road sign

   rsAgeEval:  log(sqrt((287 - (387 - 187) + 11 + 2))) * 51 = 51

   rsHwyEval:  287 - (387 - 187) - sqrt(51 - 2) * 11 = 10
   * This road sign was found on I-10

   rs42Eval:  51 - 11 + sqrt(((387 + 187) / 287 + 2)) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   more math:  (387 + 187) / 287 = sqrt(cuberoot(51 + 11 + 2))
