These road signs are on westbound IL Hwy-9 in Illinois.

The road signs say...

   +------------------+
   | Dallas City    4 |
   | Nauvoo        19 |
   +------------------+
   +----------------+ +---------------+
   | Speed Limit 55 | | West IL Hwy-9 |
   +----------------+ +---------------+
   the numbers are:  4  19  55  9

   the math is:  4 * 9 + 19 = 55

   more math:  sqrt(4) * sqrt(9) = sqrt(55 - 19)

   rsAgeEval:  55 + 9 / (19 % 4) = 58
   rsAgeEval:  55 + 4 - log(19 - 9) = 58
   * RoadHacker was 58 years young when he found these signs.

   rsStateEval:  55 - 4! + 9 - 19 = 21
   * Illinois was the 21st state admitted to the Union.
   
   rsHwyEval:  (55 - 19) / sqrt(4) - 9 = 9
   * These signs are on IL Hwy-9.

   rsCardinalityEval:  (55 - 19) / sqrt(9)! - sqrt(4) = 4
   * There are 4 numbers in these signs.

   ... modulus playground...
   55 % 19 = 17; 55 % 9 = 1; 55 % 4 = 3
   19 % 9 = 1; 19 % 4 = 3; 9 % 4 = 1
