BARS::North of Loop 101 Exits 50 and 51 in Scottsdale, Arizona

These road signs were found on southbound prime-numbered Loop 101 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The road signs say...

   +-------------+ +--------------+
   |    Exit 51  | |    Exit 50   |
   |   Loop 202  | | McKellips Rd |
   | 1 1/2 Miles | |   3/4 Mile   |
   +-------------+ +--------------+

   the numbers are:  51  202  (1 1/2)  50  (3/4)

      fraction_to_decimal(1 1/2) = 1.5  
      fraction_to_decimal(3/4) = 0.75

   the math is:  1.5 / 0.75 x (51 + 50) = 202

   observe...
      1.5 / 0.75 = 2   (fractions:  3/2 / 3/4 = 3/2 x 4/3 = 12/6 = 2)
      51 + 50 = 101
      2 x 101 = 202
