BARS::One-Fourth Mile From 19th Ave. in Phoenix, Arizona

This road sign is on westbound Loop 101 in Phoenix, Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +--------------------+
   | 19th Ave       1/4 |
   | Jct I-17       3/4 |
   | 27th Ave         1 |
   +--------------------+
   the numbers are:  19  1/4  17  3/4  27  1

   the math is:  sqrt(19 + 17) / (cuberoot(27)!) - sqrt(1/4) = sqrt(1 - 3/4)

   more math:  sqrt(27 / (19 - 17 + 1)) * (1/4) = 3/4 

   more math:  log(27 - 17! / ((19 - (3/4) / (1/4))!)) = 1

   rsPhiEval:  (1 + sqrt(sqrt(27 - 19 + 17))) * ((3/4) - (1/4)) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rsCardinalityEval:  27 / (19 - 17 + 1) - ((3/4) / (1/4)) = 6
   * There are six numbers in this road sign.

   rs42Eval:  19 + 17 + cuberoot(27) + 1 * ((3/4) / (1/4)) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * note: MathBabbler is not a fan of multiplying by 1 

   rs48Eval:  (19 - 17) * (27^1 - ((3/4) / (1/4))) = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.
   * note: MathBabbler is not a fan of raising expressions to the 1st power

   rsAgeEval:  27 * (19 - 17) + sqrt(1/4) + sqrt(1 - 3/4) = 55
   * RoadHacker was 55 years young when he found this road sign.

   rsHwyEval:  (19 + 17) * cuberoot(27) - 1 - ((3/4) / (1/4))! = 101
   * This road sign is on Loop 101.

   off-by-one math:  sqrt(19 - (27 - 17)) - (1/4) - (3/4) = 1+1
