BARS::Off-By-One On AZ Hwy-74 Two Miles East of Lake Pleasant In Arizona

This road sign was found two miles east of Lake Pleasant on AZ Hwy-74 in Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +--------------------+
   | Lake Pleasant    2 |
   | Jct. U.S. 60    21 |
   | Wickenburg      30 |
   +--------------------+
   the numbers are:  2  21  30  60

   the off-by-one math is:  sqrt(60 - 30 - 21) = 2 + 1

   rsAgeEval:  60 + 21 - 30 - 2 = 49
   * MathBabbler was 49 years young when this road sign was found.

   split_into_squares_sum(60) = { 36, 16, 4, 4 }

   the numbers become:  2  21  30   36  16  4  4

   the math is:  
      (sqrt(30 - 21) * 2 * sqrt(4) * sqrt(4)) / sqrt(16) = sqrt(36)
