BARS::I-17 Junction in 2 Miles on Westbound I-10 in Phoenix, Arizona

This road sign was found on westbound I-10 in Phoenix, Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +-------------------+
   | 7th Ave       3/4 |
   | 19th Ave    1 1/2 |
   | Jct 17          2 |
   +-------------------+

   the numbers are:  7  (3/4)  19  (1 1/2)  17  2

                            A                  C
                     ----------------     -------------
                     |               |    |           |
   the math is: (2 x ((3/4) / (1 1/2))) + sqrt(19 + 17) = 7
                |                     |
                -----------------------
                          B

   observe...
      A = (3/4) / (1 1/2) = (3/4) / (3/2) = (3/4) x (2/3) = (1/2)
      B = 2 x A = 2 x (1/2) = 1
      C = sqrt(19 + 17) = sqrt(36) = 6
      B + C = 1 + 6 = 7
