BARS::500 N 3rd Ave and 500 E 5th St in Tucson, Arizona

These street signs were found on Pi Day 2009 in Tucson, Arizona.

The street signs say...

   +--------------------+
   | 5th       St 500 E |
   ----------------------
   | 3rd      Ave 500 N |
   ----------------------
   |     STOP 4-Way     |
   +--------------------+
   the numbers are:  5  500  3  500  4

   the math is:  sqrt(500 / (500 / 4)) + 3 = 5

   rsPhiEval:  ((500 / 500) + sqrt(5)) / (3! - 4) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rs42Eval:  5! / 3 + sqrt(4! / log(500 + 500)!) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsAgeEval:  4! * (5 - 3) + log(500 + 500) = 51
   * RoadHacker was 51 years young when he found these signs

   more math:  500 / 500 * (5 - 3) = sqrt(4)

   more math:  5 - 4 = 3^(500 - 500)
   
   more math:  cuberoot(500 / 4) - log(500 / 5) = 3

   more math:  log(500 + 500) / 3 + 4 = 5

   more math:  cuberoot(500 - 500 + 5 + 3) = sqrt(4)

   more math:  avg(3, 500 / (500 / 5)) = 4

   more math:  avg(3, 5) = 500 / (500 / 4)

Again, these street signs were found on Pi Day 2009 in Tucson, Arizona.
