BARS::64th St Exit Closed in Scottsdale, Arizona

This road sign is on the north/east Loop 101 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +--------------------+
   | 64th St     CLOSED |
   | 56th St      1 1/2 |
   | Tatum Blvd   2 1/2 |
   +--------------------+
   the numbers are:  64  56  1 1/2  2 1/2

   the math is:  cuberoot(64 - 56) = sqrt(2 1/2 + 1 1/2)

   rs42Eval:  floor(64 * 1 1/2 - 56 + 2 1/2) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsStateEval:  56 - cuberoot(64) - 2 1/2 - 1 1/2 = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   rsAgeEval:  56 - cuberoot(64) / (2 1/2 + 1 1/2) = 55
   * RoadHacker was 55 years young when he found this road sign.

   rsAgeEval:  56 - sqrt(cuberoot(64)) + (2 1/2 - 1 1/2) = 55
   * MathBabbler was 55 years young when he found this road sign.

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  (56 / sqrt(64))^sqrt(2 1/2 + 1 1/2) = 48+1
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   more math:  64 - 56 = ceil(1 1/2)^ceil(2 1/2)
   * ceil(n) rounds n up to nearest whole number
   * ceil(1 1/2) = 2; ceil(2 1/2) = 3
