BARS::Start North-Bound AZ Hwy-72 at Hope, Arizona

This road sign is at the start of northbound AZ Hwy-72 at Hope, Arizona. {Note: We're really never beyond hope.}

The road sign says...

   +-----------------------+
   | SR 95              36 |
   | Parker             48 |
   | Lake Havasu City   87 |
   +-----------------------+
   the numbers are:  95  36  48  87

   the math is:  48 / sqrt(36) + 87 = 95

   observe...
      sqrt(36) = 6
      48 / 6 = 8
      87 + 8 = 95

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #5 of the fall 2009 semester.

   the numbers are:  95  36  48  87

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  (95 - 48) + (87 % sqrt(36)) = 49 + 1
   * RoadHacker was 49 years young when he found this road sign.

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  (95 - 48) + (87 % sqrt(36))! = 52 + 1
   * MathBabbler was 52 years young when he found this equation.

   for future reference...
      * spf(95) = 24; spf(36) = 10; spf(48) = 11; spf(87) = 32
      * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n

   [solve for 'n']   48 / sqrt(n) + 87 = 95
Update::2010.02.22

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #6 of the spring 2010 semester.

   the numbers are:  95  36  48  87

   rsPiEval:  (95 + 87 - cuberoot(48 / sqrt(36))) degrees = Pi radians

   rsTweetLenEval:  95 + 87 - 48 + sqrt(36) = 140
   * 140 is the maximum length of a Twitter posting (tweet).
