BARS::Nearing Rural Rd. on Westbound US Hwy-60 in Tempe, Arizona

This road sign is on westbound US-60 one-quarter mile east of the Rural Road exit in Tempe, Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +------------------------+
   | Rural Rd           1/4 |
   | Mill Ave         1     |
   | Priest Ave       2 1/4 |
   +------------------------+
   the numbers are:  (1/4)  1   (2 1/4)

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

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

   how about?  (1/4 + 1/4) * 2 = 1
