BARS::4 Miles From Vermilion Cliffs in Arizona

This road sign was found by ColletteC during the spring 2009 semester.

The road sign says...

   +-----------------------+
   | Vermilion Cliffs    4 |
   | Cliff Dwellers      9 |
   | Fredonia           70 |
   +-----------------------+
   +--------------------------+
   |    Lees Ferry Anglers    |
   |   Cliff Dwellers Lodge   |
   | 9 Miles - Straight Ahead |
   +--------------------------+
   the numbers are:   4  9  70  9

   the math is:  sqrt(70 + 9 + sqrt(4)) = 9

   more math:  sqrt(70 - sqrt(9)!) * sqrt(9) = 4!

   rsStateEval:  70 - 4! + sqrt(9)! / sqrt(9) = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  70 - 4! + 9 / 9 = 48 - 1
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  70 - 4! + cuberoot(9 * sqrt(9)) = 48 + 1
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  70 / sqrt(4) + 9 + sqrt(9)! = 51 - 1
   * MathBabbler was 51 years young when he found this equation

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  70 - sqrt(4! * sqrt(9)!) - sqrt(9)! = 51 + 1
   * MathBabbler was 51 years young when he found this equation

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  70 - sqrt(4! * sqrt(9)!) - 9 = 48 + 1
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union
