This road sign is in Arizona.

The road sign says...

```   +------------------+
| SR 72          6 |
| Quartzsite    36 |
| Los Angeles  283 |
+------------------+
```
```   the numbers are:  72  6  36  283

rs37Eval:  283 % 6 + 72 - 36 = 37

rs37Eval:  283 % 72 - 36 + 6 = 37

off-by-one rsCardinalityEval:  283 % 6 + 72 / 36 = 4-1
* There are four numbers in this road sign.

* 283 is a prime number....
+ sum_digits(n) = sum the digits of n
domain:  n must be a prime number
+ mult_digits(n) = product of the digits of n
domain:  n must be a prime number
+ reverse_digits(n) = the digits of n reversed
domain:  n must be a prime number
* sum_digits(283) = 2+8+3 = 13
* mult_digits(283) = 2*8*3 = 48
* reverse_digits(283) = 382

BARSfunc math:  cuberoot(sum_digits(sqrt(283 + 6))) * 36 = 72
* 17 is a prime number; sum_digits(17) = 1+7 = 8

BARSfunc math:  mult_digits(283) % 6 = 72 % 36

BARSfuns rs42Eval:  sqrt(72 - 36 + sum_digits(283)) * 6 = 42
* 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

BARSfunc rs42Eval:  sqrt(72 - 36 + sum_digits(283)) * 6 = 42
* 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

BARSfunc rsStateEval:  sqrt((72 / 6 + 36) * mult_digits(283)) = 48
* Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union

BARSfunc rsAgeEval:  72 - 36 + sum_digits(283) + 6 = 55
* RoadHacker was 55 years young when he found this road sign.
