### BARS::3 Miles From McGuireville on Southbound I-17 in Arizona

This road sign is on southbound I-17 in Arizona. [Note: This picture was taken by RoadHacker while he was riding in a Greyhound bus from Flagstaff, Arizona, to Phoenix, Arizona.]

```   +------------------+
| McGuireville   3 |
| Camp Verde     9 |
| Phoenix       98 |
+------------------+
```
```   the numbers are:  3  9  98

rsCardinalityEval:  3! / (98 % sqrt(9)) = 3
* There are three numbers in this road sign.

rsStateEval:  98 % 9 * 3! = 48
* Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

BARSfunc rsStateEval:  9 / 3 * spf(98) = 48
* Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.
* spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
domain: n must be a composite number
* spf(98) = 2+7+7 = 16

BARSfunc rsStateEval:  3! * sqrt(spd(98) - 9) = 48
* Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.
* spd(n) = the sum of the proper divisors of n
domain: n must be a composite number
* spd(98) = 1+2+7+14+49 = 73

BARSfunc rsAgeEval:  98 - summation(3, 9) = 56
* MathBabbler was 56 years young when he found this equation.
* summation(3, 9) = 3+4+5+6+7+8+9 = 42

BARSfunc math: 3 * log(sum_digits(spd(98))) = sqrt(9)
* sum_digits(n) = sum the digits of n
domain:  n must be a prime number
* spd(98) = 73, which is prime; sum_digits(73) = 7+3 = 10
