BARS::Six Miles From Number Nine, Arkansas

This road sign is six miles east of Number Nine, Arkansas. {Note: There's not much in Number Nine, but RoadHacker did find the Number Nine church.}

The road sign says...

   +------------------+
   | Number Nine    6 |
   | Huffman       11 |
   +------------------+
   using Nine as a number...
   the numbers are:  9  6  11

   the binary math is:  9 - 6 = 11base-2
Update::2009.10.17

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #9 of the fall 2009 semester.

   the numbers are:  9  6  11

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  9 + 6 + 11 = 25+1
   * Arkansas was the 25th state admitted to the Union.

   off-by-one rs42Eval:  9 * 6 - 11 = 42+1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  summation(6, 11) - sqrt(9) = 49-1
   * Roadhacker was 49 years young when he found this road sign.
   * summation(6, 11) = 6+7+8+9+10+11 = 51

   BARSfunc math:  spf(9) + spf(6) = 11
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
   * spf(9) = 3+3 = 6; spf(6) = 2+3 = 5

   rsDupEval:  9! / 6! % 11 = dup(9)
   * 9! / 6! = 504; 504 % 11 = 9
