   +------------------------+
   | <- Morongo Valley    9 |
   | Route 10   1        -> |
   +------------------------+
   the numbers are:  1   9   10

   the math is:  1 + 9 = 10
Update::2010.02.17

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #5 of the spring 2010 semester.

   the numbers are:  1   9   10

   the math:  log(10! / 9!) = 1

   more math:  10 % 9 = 1

   rsStateEval:  1 + sqrt(9) * 10 = 31
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

   rsAgeEval:  summation(1, 10) - sqrt(9) = 52
   * MathBabbler was 52 years young when he found this equation.
   * summation(1, 10) = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10 = 55

   rsAgeEval:  summation(sqrt(9), 10) * 1 = 52
   * MathBabbler was 52 years young when he found this equation.
   * summation(3, 10) = 3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10 = 52

   BARSfunc math:  1 + spf(9) = spf(10)
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
   * spf(9) = 3+3 = 6; spf(10) = 2+5 = 7

   off-by-one rs42Eval:  summation(sqrt(9)!, 10) + 1 = 42-1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * summation(6, 10) = 6+7+8+9+10 = 40
