BARS::Eastbound I-40 From a Train in Arizona

This road sign is on eastbound I-40 in Arizona. The picture was taken from an eastbound Southwestern Chief on 24 December 2015.

The road sign says...

   +---------------------+
   | Jct US-191 South  5 |
   | Gallup           47 |
   | Albuquerque     187 |
   +---------------------+
   the numbers are:  191  5  47  187

   the math is:  47 % 5 = sqrt(191 - 187)  {check}

   rsCardinalityEval:  sqrt(191 - 187) + 47 % 5 = 4
   * There are four numbers in this road sign.

   rs37Eval:  47 - 5 * sqrt(191 - 187) = 37
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   rs42Eval:  47 - 5! / (191 - 187)! = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsStateEval:  5 + 187 - 191 + 47 = 48
   off-by-one rsStateEval:  187 % 47 + 191 % 5 = 48-1
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  5 * sqrt(191 - 187) + 47 = 58-1
   * MathBabbler was 58 years young when he found this road sign.

   BARSfunc rsCardinalityEval:  5! / (47 - 187 / sum_digits(191)) = 4
   * There are four numbers in this road sign.
   * sum_digits(n) = sum the digits of n
     domain:  n must be a prime number
   * 191 is prime; sum_digits(191) = 1+9+1 = 11
   * 5! / (47 - 187 / 11) = 4

   BARSfunc rs37Eval:  (187 - 47) / 5 + sum_digits(191) = 37
   * sum_digits(191) = 11; (187 - 47) / 5 + 11 = 37
