BARS::1 Mile From 7th St. in Phoenix, Arizona

This road sign is on the eastbound Loop 101 in north Phoenix, Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +--------------------+
   | 7th St           1 |
   | 7th Ave          2 |
   | 19th Ave         3 |
   +--------------------+
   the numbers are:  7  1  7  2  19  3

   the math is:   (19 - 7 - 7 + 1) / 2 = 3

   more math:  sqrt(7 + 7 + 19 + 3) = (1 + 2)!

   more math:  1 + 2 + 3 + 7 = sqrt(summation(7, 19))
   * summation(7, 19) = 7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16+17+18+19 = 169

   rsPiEval:  (19 + 3) / (7 * 2 - 7 * 1) ~= Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)
   * 3.1415926535897932384626

   rsPiEval:  (2 * (19 + 3)) / (7^1 + 7) ~= Pi
   * 44/14 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)

   rs42Eval:  7 + 19 + summation(3, 7) + 1^2 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * summation(3, 7) = 3+4+5+6+7 = 25

   rsStateEval:  sqrt(summation(3, 7))! / 2 - 19 + 7^1 = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.
