BARS::Get Your Math Kicks on Route 66 in Arizona

This mural is on Route 66 in Kingman, Arizona.

MathBabbler took a picture of this mural on his last day of being 50 years young.

The number 66 is the sum of three square numbers; therefore, the split_into_squares_sum(n) BARS function was used to do some math.

   split_into_squares_sum(66) = { 25, 25, 16 }

   the numbers become:  25  25  16

   the math is:  sqrt(25)! / sqrt(16)! = sqrt(25)

   more math:  sqrt(25)^sqrt(sqrt(16)) = 25

   rsAgeEval:  sqrt(25) * sqrt(25) * sqrt(sqrt(16)) = 50
   * RoadHacker drove Route 66 on his last day being 50 years young.

   invalid rsEval [66 is used twice]...
   rsAgeEval:  66 - sum_prime_factors(66) = 50

   rs42Eval:  2516 + sqrt(25) = 42

   split_into_squares_sum(25) = { 16, 9 }

   the numbers become:  25  16  9  16

   average math:  avg(sqrt(25), sqrt(16), sqrt(9)) = sqrt(16)

The mural used in this BARS is next to a road sign that was used in a BARS created on 3 June 2006. The following BARS was updated to include a rsAgeEval=50 and a rs42Eval.
