BARS::Nearing Foothills Blvd. on I-8 East in Yuma, Arizona

This road sign is on eastbound I-8 in Yuma, Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +-------------------------------+
   | Avenue 8 1/2 E   I-8    1 1/2 |
   | Fortuna Rd              3 3/4 |
   | Foothills Blvd          5 3/4 |
   +-------------------------------+
   the numbers are:  (8 1/2)  8  (1 1/2)  (3 3/4)  (5 3/4)

   the math is:  8 1/2 + 1 1/2 - 5 3/4 + 3 3/4 = 8

   rsHwyEval: sqrt(8 * (8 1/2 + 1 1/2 - 5 3/4 + 3 3/4)) = 8
   * This road sign is on I-8.

   [solve for 'n']  8 1/2 + 1 1/2 - 5 n/4 + 3 n/4 = 8
