   another mile closer to SCC on Loop 101...

   +-----------------------------+
   | Thomas Rd               1/4 |
   | Indian School Rd      1 1/4 |
   | Chaparral Rd          2 1/4 |
   +-----------------------------+

   the numbers are:  (1/4)  (1 1/4)  (2 1/4)

   the math is:  (1/4) + (1 1/4) = sqrt(2 1/4)

   observe...
      1/4 + 1 1/4 = 1 1/4   (0.25 + 1.25 = 1.5)
      2 1/4 = 9/4
      sqrt(9/4) = sqrt(9)/sqrt(4) = 3/2 = 1.5
