BARS::Heading for Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado

This road sign was found on I-E470 in Denver, Colorado.

The road sign says...

   +-----------------------+
   | I-25                1 |
   | Sheridan Pkwy   2 3/4 |
   | US 36          10 1/4 |
   +-----------------------+

   the numbers are:  25  1  (2 3/4)  36  (10 1/4)

   the math is:  sqrt(36) - sqrt(25) = 1^(2 3/4 + 10 1/4)

   observe...
      sqrt(36) = 6
      sqrt(25) = 5
      2 3/4 + 10 1/4 = 13
      1^13 = 1

   more math:  floor(10 1/4) + floor(2 3/4) + 25 - 36 = 1

   observe...
      floor(10 1/4) = 10
      floor(2 3/4) = 2

   off-by-one math:  2 3/4 + 10 1/4 - 1 = 36 - 25 [+1]
