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## Update::2009.09.18

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).
