BARS::2 Miles From Camp Verde on AZ Hwy-260 in Arizona

This road sign is on westbound AZ Hwy-260 in Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +----------------+
   | Camp Verde   2 |
   | Cottonwood  16 |
   +----------------+
   the numbers are:  2  16

   the math is:  sqrt(sqrt(16)) = 2

   [solve for 'n']  2^___ = 16
Update::2011.05.20

rsEvals and numerous BARSfuncs were added to the BARS system after this BARS was created on 30 May 2008.

   the numbers are:  2  16

   rsStateEval:  2 * sqrt(16)! = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   BARSfunc math:  cuberoot(spf(16)) = 2
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
   * spf(16) = 2+2+2+2 = 8

   split_into_squares_sum(16) = { 4, 4, 4, 4 } 
   * split_into_squares_sum(n) takes a positive integer n as input and 
   * it outputs a set containing square numbers (each greater than one) 
   * that when summed equals n

   the numbers become:  2  split_into_squares_sum(16)
                        2  4  4  4  4
                          
   the math is:  4 / 4 + 4 / 4 = 2

   more math:  4 / (4 / (4 / 2)) = sqrt(4)

   rsAgeEval:  2 * 4! + 4 + 4 / 4 = 53
   * MathBabbler was 53 young when he found this equation.
