### BARS::Heading West To Rice On CA Hwy-62

These road signs are on westbound CA Hwy-62 near Vidal Junction in California.

```   +-----------------+
| 29 Palms     93 |
| Route 10    134 |
+-----------------+
| West |
|  CA  |
|  62  |
+------+
```
```   the numbers are:  29  93  10  134  62

No math has been found.

rsHwyEval:
62 * log(summation(log(10), sqrt(sqrt(29 + 93 + 134)))) = 62

observe...
29 + 93 + 134 = 256
sqrt(256) = 16
sqrt(16) = 4
log(10) = 1
summation(1, 4) = 10
62 * log(10) = 62 * 1 = 62
```

The signs used in this BARS are on one of MathBabbler's favorite highways--CA Hwy-62. He tried to hard to find a math equation for the signs and the following are some of his notes.

```   off-by-one math...
(134 - 62) / sqrt(93 - 29) = 9    (9 needs to be 10)

the numbers have been reduced to the following sets...
{ 8, 10, 14 }   { 256, 10, 62 }

all of the following are square numbers...
93 - 29 = 64          sqrt( 64) =  8
62 + 29 - 10 = 81     sqrt( 81) =  9   sqrt(9) = 3
134 + 62 = 196        sqrt(196) = 14
134 + 10 = 144        sqrt(144) = 12
29 + 93 + 134 = 256   sqrt(256) = 16   sqrt(16) = 4   sqrt(4) = 2

log(10) = 1

summation(4, 10) = 49   sqrt(49) = 7
summation(1, 8) = 36    sqrt(36) = 6

let's look at the numbers 93 and 62...
prime factors of 93 are 3 * 31
31 is half of 62
prime factors of 62 are 2 * 31
the largest prime factor of 62 minus the
smallest prime factor of 62 equals 29
29 is a prime number found in the sign

prime factors of 134 are 2 and 67

##### Update::2008.05.16

On 1 May 2008, MathBabbler wrote this C++ program to convert a string into a number. The program converts the string into the digits that MathBabbler needs to press on his cell phone in order to send the string as a text message. The number of the string-to-number conversion is the sum of the digits digits needed to send to enter the string as a text message.

```        palms: 7255567777 (sums to 79)
route: 77766688833 (sums to 69)
interstate: 44466833777777782833 (sums to 132)
west: 93377778 (sums to 72)
california: 2222555444333666777664442 (sums to 109)
```
```   the numbers become:  29  93  10  134  62  79  69  132  72  109

the math is:  (109 - 93) / (134 - 132) = (29 + 62 - 10 - 79)^(72 - 69)

observe...
left-side:
109 - 93 = 16
134 - 132 = 2
16 / 2 = 8
right-side:
29 + 62 - 10 - 79 = 2
72 - 69 = 3
2^3 = 8
