BARS::US Hwy-83 and US Hwy-50 Jct. in Garden City, Kansas

These highway signs are at the junction of prime numbered US Hwy-83 and US Hwy-50 in Garden City, Kansas.

The highway signs say...

   +----------+ +--------+
   | Business | | US 50  |
   |   US 50  | | US 400 |
   |   US 83  | ----------
   ------------ |   ^    |
   |   <---   | |   |    |
   +----------+ ----------
                | US  83 |
                ----------
                |  --->  |
                +--------+
   the numbers are:  50  400  50  83  83

   the math is:  sqrt(83^(sqrt(400 / (50 + 50))) = 83

   observe...
      50 + 50 = 100
      400 / 100 = 4
      sqrt(4) = 2
      83^2 = 6889
      sqrt(6889) = 83

   [solve for 'n']  sqrt(n^(sqrt(400 / (50 + 50))) = 83
