The mileage sign says...

   +------------------+
   | Flagstaff    256 |
   | Lake Havasu   88 |
   | Las Vegas    220 |
   | Laughlin     133 |
   | Los Angeles  250 |
   | Phoenix      120 |
   | Tucson       237 |
   | Yuma          81 |
   +------------------+
   the numbers are:  256  88  220  133  250  120  237  81

   the math is: no math quickly found

   compositeRS: All of the numbers are composite numbers.
   * note: this is the first usage of the compositeRS label

   ...playground #0...

   the numbers sorted:  256  250  237  220  133  120  88  81

   256 - 250 =  6
   237 - 220 = 17
   133 - 120 = 13
    88 -  81 =  7

   the new numbers are:  6  17  13  7

   the math is:  (7 - 17 + 13)! = 6

   more math:  13 % 6 = log(17 - 7)

   rsCardinalityEval:  log(17 - 13 + 6) + 7 = 8
   * There are 8 numbers on this mileage rock.

   rs37Eval:  7! / 6! + 17 + 13 = 37
   rs37Eval:  6 + (17 - 13)! + 7 = 37
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   rs42Eval:  7! / ((17 + 13) / 6)! = 42
   rs42Eval:  sqrt((7 * 6)^(sqrt(17 - 13)) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsAgeEval:  (sqrt(17 - 13) + 6) * 7 = 56
   * MathBabbler was 56 years young when he found this equation.

   off-by-one math:  sqrt(6 + 17 + 13) = 7-1
   off-by-one rs42Eval:  6 + 17 + 13 + 7 = 42+1

   ...playground #1...

   the original numbers are:  256  88  220  133  250  120  237  81

   256 - 220 = 36 
               81
   250 % 120 = 10
   237 - 133 - 88 = 16

   the new numbers are:  36  81  10  16

   * do some equationeering... (i.e. find equations)

   ...playground #2...

   This mileage rock contains eight composite numbers, so do some 
   equationeering using the spd function.  Note: The spd function 
   become a BARSfunc on 23 November 2013.

   * spd(n) = the sum of the proper divisors of n
     domain: n must be a composite number
