BARS::3 Miles From Willcox on Eastbound I-10 in Arizona

This road sign is on eastbound I-10 in Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +------------------------------+
   | Willcox                    3 |
   | AZ Hwy-186 East            3 |
   | Chiricahua Natl Monument  40 |
   +------------------------------+
   the numbers are:  3  186  3  40

   the math is:  sqrt(40 - 186 / 3!) = 3

   rs42Eval:  40 + (186 / 3) % 3 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsStateEval:  (3! * 40) - 186 - 3! = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  (3! * 40) - 186 - 3 = 53+1
   * RoadHacker was 53 years young when he found this road sign.

   BARSfunc rsHwyEval:  3 + 3 + 40 - spf(186) = 10
   * This road sign is on I-10.
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
   * spf(186) = 2+3+31 = 36
