BARS::Phi Exit 147 on Eastbound I-10 in Phoenix, Arizona

These road signs were found on eastbound I-10 in Phoenix, Arizona.

The road signs say...

+----------------------------+ +---------+ +-----------+ +-----------+
| Exit Left             147C | | 10 East | | Exit 147B | | Exit 147A |
| HOV 202  East  HOV 10 East | |  Tucson | | 51  North | | 202  East |
|                 6am - 9am  | +---------+ | 1/4  Mile | | 1/4  Mile |
|                 3pm - 7pm  |             +-----------+ | Exit Only |
+----------------------------+                           +-----------+

   the numbers are:  
      147  202  10  6  9  3  7  10  51  1/4  147  147  202  1/4

   the math is:
      n = (1/4) * (51 - (147 - (((202 + 202) * (1/4)) - (147 / 147))))
      d = sqrt(log(10) + log(10) + 6 - 3))
      (n + d) / (9 - 7) = Phi

      ...or...

      (((1/4) * (51 - (147 - (((202 + 202) * (1/4)) - (147 / 147))))) 
        + sqrt(log(10) + log(10) + 6 - 3)) / (9 - 7) = Phi

   observe...
      Phi = 1.61803399   or   (1 + sqrt(5)) / 2
      log(10) = 1
