BARS::I-25 From Downtown Pueblo, Colorado

This road sign is on northbound I-25, but it was seen from downtown Pueblo, Colorado.

The road sign says...

   +---------------------------+
   | 13th Street           1/4 |
   | US 50 East            3/4 |
   | 29th Street         1 1/2 |
   +---------------------------+
   the numbers are:  13  50  29  (1/4)  (3/4)  (1 1/2)

   the math is:  (3/4) * (1/4) * (50 - 29 - 13) = (1 1/2)

   observe...
      3/4 * 1/4 = 3/16
      50 - 29 - 13 = 8
      3/16 * 8 = 24/16 = 1 8/16 = 1 1/2

   [solve for 'n']  (3/4) * (1/n) * (50 - 29 - 13) = (1 1/2)

   ...the remaining math was found on 2008.10.25...

   observe:  sqrt(1 1/2 - sqrt(1/4) - 3/4) = 1/2

   the numbers become:  13  29  50  1/2

   rs42Eval:  (13 + 29) * log(sqrt(50 / (1/2))) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsAgeEval:  50 - 1/2 * sqrt(sqrt(29 - 13)) = 49
   * RoadHacker found this sign when he 49 years young.
