BARS::3 Miles From Deer Valley Road on I-17 in Arizona

This road sign is on southbound I-17 in Arizona. [This picture was taken from a Greyhound bus.]

The road sign says...

   +---------------------------+
   | Happy Valley Rd       1/2 |
   | Pinnacle Peak Rd        2 |
   | Deer Valley Rd          3 |
   +---------------------------+
   the numbers are:  (1/2)  2   3

   rsStateEval:  avg(2, 3!)! / (1/2) = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   more math:  ceil(3 * (1/2)) = 2

   more math:  3 - 2 = ceil(1/2)

   more math:  2 / 3 = floor(1/2)

   BARSfunc rsPhiEval:  (1/2) + sqrt(2 + 3) * dup(1/2) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399
   * dup(1/2) causes the numbers become: (1/2)  (1/2)  3  2
