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
