This road sign was found at a stop sign at CA Hwy-62 one mile north of I-10 in California.

The road sign says...

+------------------------+ | <- 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
