The road sign says...

   +------------------------+
   | Vineyard Blvd.     1/4 |
   | Pali Hwy.          3/4 |
   | School St.       1 1/4 |
   +------------------------+
   the numbers are:  (1/4)  (3/4)  (1 1/4)

   the math is:  sqrt(1/4) + 3/4 = 1 1/4

   rsPhiEval:  (3/4 - 1/4) + sqrt(1 1/4) = Phi

   observe...
      Phi = golden ratio = 1.61803399...

   [solve for 'n']  (3/n - 1/n) + (1 1/4)^(1/2) = Phi
