BARS::Off-By-One on I-17 Fives Mile North of Happy Valley Road in Arizona

This road sign was found on southbound I-17 five miles north of Happy Valley Road in Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +---------------------+
   | Happy Valley Rd   5 |
   | Jct 101           7 |
   | Jct 10           23 |
   +---------------------+
   the numbers are:  5  7  10  23  101

   the off-by-one math is:  (23 * 7 - 101) / 10 = 5 + 1

   rs42Eval:  5! / sqrt(101 - log(10)) + 7 + 23 = 42
   * the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   off-by-one rsHwyEval:  23 + 7 - 5! / sqrt(101 - log(10)) = 18 - 1
   * road sign found on I-17
