   * RoadHacker found these signs on his next to last day 
     of being 50 years young.

   rsAgeEval:  89 - 40 + sqrt(sqrt(16)) + 0 = 51
   * MathBabbler created this BARS on day three of being
     51 years young.

   rsHwyEval:  89 * (40 + 16)^0 = 89
   * These signs are on AZ Hwy-89.

   * the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

Beyond the I-40 overpass is a speed limit sign containing the number 35.

   +--------+
   | Speed  |
   | Limit  |
   |   35   |
   +--------+
   the numbers are:  16  0  89  40  35

   the math is:  35 / sqrt(89 - 40) - 0! = sqrt(16)

   observe...
      89 - 40 = 49
      sqrt(49) = 7
      35 / 7 = 5
      0! = 1
      5 - 1 = 4
      sqrt(16) = 4
