This road sign is in downtown Twentynine Palms.

The road sign says...

+--------------------+ | Route 10 42 | | Joshua Tree 15 | | Marine Base 5 | +--------------------+the numbers are: 10 42 15 5 rs42Eval: 42 * (15 / (10 + 5)) = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" rs42Eval: log(10) * log(15 - 5) * 42 = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" rsAgeEval: 42 + 15 - 5 - log(10) = 51 * RoadHacker was 51 years young when he found this sign. rsHwyEval: 42 + 10 - 5 + 15 = 62 * This road sign was found on CA Hwy-62RoadHacker::Cattle Days mural in Twentynine Palms, CA

## Update::2009.02.06

This BARS, which was created discovered during winter-break 2008-09, was used as one of the BARS of the Week for week 4 of the spring 2009 semester.

the numbers are: 10 42 15 5 binary (base-2) math: (42 + 15) % 5 = 10_{2}octal (base-8) math: cuberoot(42 - 15) + 5 = 10_{8}hexadecimal (base-16) math: 42 * 5 / 10 = 15_{16}[solve for 'n'] 42 * (15 / (n + 5)) = 42 [solve for 'log(10)'] 42 + 15 - 5 - log(10) = 51## Update::2009.02.07

This BARS is first BARS to use a

rsDupEval.the numbers are: 10 42 15 5 rsDupEval: sqrt(5 * 42 + 15) - 10 = 5A

rsDupEvalallows one number found in a sign to be duplicated (i.e. used a second time or duped). The rule is that a math expression must be found that uses all of the numbers in the sign such that when evaluated it equals the duped number.
