BARS::1200 S. 48th St. and 2400 W. 12th St. in Tempe, Arizona

These street signs are at 1200 S. 48th St. and 2400 W. 12th St. in Tempe, Arizona. [MathBabbler was going to a math meeting at Rio Salado Community College when he encountered these street signs.]

The street signs say...

   +------------------+
   | 1200 S. 48th St. |
   | 2400 W. 12th St. |
   +------------------+
   the numbers are:  1200  48  2400  12

   the math is:  sqrt(48  / 12) * 1200 = 2400

   more math:  sqrt(1200 + 2400) + 12 = 48

   rsStateEval:  48 * log(sqrt((2400 - 1200) / 12)) = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   rsAgeEval:  48 + 12 / (2400 / 1200) = 54
   * MathBabbler was 54 years young when he found these street signs.

   rsCardinalityEval:  sqrt(48 / 12) * (2400 / 1200) = 4
   * There are 4 numbers in these street signs.
