### 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
