BARS::Phi Street Signs at 1000 W. 5th St. and 500 S. Hardy Dr. in Tempe, Arizona

These street signs are on the northwest corner of 1000 W. 5th Street and 500 S. Hardy Drive in Tempe, Arizona.

The street signs say...

   +--------------------+
   | W 5th St  1000  -> |
   +--------------------+
   | S Hardy Dr  <- 500 |
   +--------------------+
   |     STOP  4-Way    |
   +--------------------+

   the numbers are:  5  500  1000  4
   rsPhiEval:  (500 / 1000) + sqrt(5) / sqrt(4) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   [solve for 'n']  (500 / n) + sqrt(5) / sqrt(4) = Phi

It is not possible to see the number 1000 on these street signs. TempeHiker is going to get a better picture from this spot when time permits. In fact, TempeHiker is going to do a video clip about these street signs.

   the math is:  500 / 4 = 5^log(1000)
   
   more math: log(1000) + log(sqrt(500 / 5)) = 4

   rsCardinalityEval:  summation(1000 / 500, 4) - 5 = 4
   * there are four signs total in all of the signs
   4 summation(2, 4) = 2+3+4 = 9

   off-by-one rs37Eval:  (1000 / 500)^5 + 4 = 37-1
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  5! / (1000 / 500) - 4 = 55+1
