BARS::47 Miles From Dateland, Arizona

This road sign is on westbound I-8 in Arizona. The picture was taken by AmandaM during the fall 2009 semester.

The road sign says...

   +--------------------+
   | Dateland        47 |
   | Yuma           114 |
   | San Diego      290 |
   +--------------------+
   the numbers are:  47  114  190

   rsStateEval:  47 + floor(190 / 114) = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   playground...
      290 % 114 = 62
      290 % 47 = 8
      114 % 47 = 20
      ...spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
      spf(114) = 24
      spf(290) = 36
      47 is prime
      reverse_digits(47) = 74; spf(74) = 39
      sum_digits(47) = 11
      multiply_digits(47) = 28

   rsStateEval:  cuberoot(290 % 47) * spf(114) = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.
