BARS::14 Miles From Hawley Lake on AZ Hwy-73 in Arizona

This road sign is on prime numbered AZ Hwy-73 in Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +-------------------------------+
   | Upper Log Campgrounds       7 |
   | Hawley Lake                14 |
   | Williams Ck. Fish Hatchery  8 |
   | Williams Ck. Youth Camp     8 |
   +-------------------------------+
   the numbers are:  7  14  8  8

   the math is:  sqrt(8^(14 / 7)) = 8

   observe...
      14 / 7 = 2
      8^2 = 64
      sqrt(64) = 8

The road sign used in this BARS was discovered on the Pi Day 2008 roadtrip.

Update::2009.03.27

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #10 of the spring 2009 semester.

   the numbers are:  7  14  8  8

   the math is:  sqrt(cuberoot(8)^cuberoot(8)) * 7 = 14

   rsPiEval:  (14 + 8) / sqrt(7^cuberoot(8)) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

   rsAgeEval:  8! / 7! * 8 - 14 = 50
   * RoadHacker was 50 years young when he found this sign

   rs42Eval:  (7 + 14) * sqrt(8 / cuberoot(8)) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   [solve for 'n']  (7 + n) * sqrt(8 / cuberoot(8)) = 42

   [solve for 'n']  40320 / n * 8 - 14 = 50
