This road sign is on AZ Hwy-61 in Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +-----------------+
   | Concho       14 |
   | Show Low     44 |
   | Holbrook     61 |
   +-----------------+
   the numbers are:   14  44  61

   rsPiEval:  (44 % 61) / 14 ~= Pi
   * 44/14 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

   rsHwyEval:  61 + floor(14 / 44) = 61
   * This sign is on AZ Hwy-61

   another rsHwyEval:  61 * ceil(14 / 44) = 61
   * This sign is on AZ Hwy-61

   number system rsAgeEval:  (61 - 44 + 14)16 = 49
   * RoadHacker was 49 years young when he found this sign

   BARS math:  avg(14, reverse_digits(61)) = spf(44)
   * reverse_digits(n) is a BARS function that is used with
     prime numbers (61 is prime; reverse_digits(61) = 16)
   * spf(n) is a BARS function that is used with composite numbers 
     (the prime factors of 44 sum to 15 [2+2+11])

   BARS rsAgeEval:  44 + sqrt(spf(14)) + sqrt(sqrt(reverse_digits(61)) = 49
   * RoadHacker was 49 years young when he found this sign

   rs42Eval:  44 - reverse_digits(61) + 14 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  44 + 14 / sqrt(sqrt(reverse_digits(61))) = 52 - 1
   * MathBabbler created this BARS at age of 52
