BARS::5 Miles From Marine Base in Twentynine Palms, California

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-62

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 = 102

   octal (base-8) math:  cuberoot(42 - 15) + 5 = 108

   hexadecimal (base-16) math:  42 * 5 / 10 = 1516

   [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 = 5

A rsDupEval allows 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.
