BARS::Nearing the Honolulu Airport on I-H1 in Hawaii

These road signs are in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Note: This road sign was discovered by SCC student Lindsay during the fall 2008 semester and the dot-jpg was given to MathBabbler on 7 October 2008.

The road signs say...

   +-----------+ +------------+ +------------+
   | I-H1 East | |    Exit 15 | |   Exit 13B |
   |  Airport  | | HI-92 West | | Halawa Hts |
   +-----------+ | Hickam AFB | |   Stadium  |
                 | Naval Base | +------------+
                 |   2 Miles  |
                 +------------+
   the numbers are:  1  15  92  2  13

   the fooish math is:  1^92 * (15 - 13) = 2

   cuban math:  cuberoot(sqrt(92 - 15 - 13)) * 1 = 2

   observe...
      92 - 15 - 13 = 64
      sqrt(64) = 8
      cuberoot(8) = 2

   [solve for 'n']  ((92 - 15 - 13)^(1/2))^(1/3) * n = 2

   [solve for 'n']  (92 - 15 - 13)^(1/n) * 1 = 2
