   |    Groom Creek       9 |

   the numbers are:  2  6  9

   the math is:  2 * sqrt(9) = 6
Update::2009.10.16

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #9 of the fall 2009 semester.

   the numbers are:  2  6  9

   rsAgeEval:  6 * 9 - 2 = 52
   * MathBabbler was 52 years young when he found this equation.

   rsStateEval:  sqrt(2^6) * sqrt(3)! = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.
   * Also an off-by-one rsAgeEval because RoadHacker 
     was 49 years young when he found this road sign.

   rs42Eval:  (9 - 2) * 6 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   another rs42Eval:  summation(6 / 2, 9) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * summation(6 / 2, 9) = summation(3, 9) = 3+4+5+6+7+8+9

   rsPiEval:  summation(2, 6) * 9 degrees = Pi radians
   * summation(2, 6) = 2+3+4+5+6 = 20

   more math:  sqrt(6^2) = sqrt(9)!
