BARS::22 Miles From I-40 on Route 66 in Oatman, Arizona

This road sign is on eastbound Route 66 in Oatman, Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +----------------------+
   | Interstate 40     22 |
   | Kingman           28 |
   +----------------------+
   the numbers are:  40  22  28

   rs420Eval:  summation(28, 40) - 22 = 420
   * summation(28, 40) = 28+29+30+31+32+33+34+35+36+37+38+39+40 = 442

   spf(40) = 2+2+2+5 = 11; spf(22) = 2+11 = 13; spf(28) = 2+2+7 = 11
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n

   BARSfunc math:  spf(40) + spf(28) = 22

   BARSfunc rs42Eval:  40 + 22 / spf(28) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

Note: This BARS is the first BARS to use a rs420Eval.
