BARS::Loop 101 at Junction with US Hwy-60 in Tempe

These road signs are on northbound Loop 101 north of Baseline Road in Tempe.

The road signs say...

   +----------------+ +------------+ +------------+
   | Loop 101 North | | Exit   55A | | Exit   55B |
   |                | | US 60 West | | US 60 East |
   |                | |  Phoenix   | |   Globe    |
   +----------------+ +------------+ +------------+

   the numbers are:  101  55  60  55  60

   the math is:  log(sqrt(101 - (55 / 55))) = 60 / 60

   observe...
      55 / 55 = 1
      101 - 1 = 100
      sqrt(100) = 10
      log(10) = 1
      66 / 66 = 1

Dividing a number by itself to get one is a mathfoo and in this BARS there are two mathfoos. In addition, the log() function is no longer accepted by RoadSignMath.com.
