BARS::US Hwy-50 Exits on I-25 in Pueblo, Colorado

This road sign was found on northbound I-25 in Pueblo, Colorado.

The road sign says...

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

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

   observe...
      50 * (1 1/2) = 75
      75 - 50 = 25
      29 - 25 = 4
      (1/4) * 4 = 1

   [solve for 'n]  (1/4) * (29 - (n * (1 1/2) - n)) = 1
Update::2009.04.22

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #14 of the spring 2009 semester.

   the numbers are:  50  (1/4)  29  1  50  (1 1/2)

   rsHwyEval:  29 + 1 - cuberoot(50 / (1/4) - 50 * (1 1/2)) = 25
   * This road sign is on I-25

   more math:  (29 + 1) * sqrt(1/4) / (1 1/2) = sqrt(50 + 50)

   more math:  log((29 + 1) * sqrt(1/4) / (1 1/2)) * 50 = 50
