### BARS::2554 Miles From Wilmington North Carolina in California

This road sign is at the western terminus of I-40 in Barstow, California.

The road sign says...

```   +----------------+
| Wilmington  NC |
| I-40   2554 mi |
+----------------+
```
```   the numbers are:  40  2554

rsCardinalityEval: gcf(40, 2554) = 2
* There are two numbers in this road sign.

BARSfunc rsStateEval:  40 - mult_digits(sum_digits(spf(2554))) = 31
* California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

* spf(n) = sum of the prime factors of n
domain:  n must be composite number
* sum_digits(n) = sum the digits of n
domain:  n must be a prime number
* mult_digits(n) = product of the digits of n
domain:  n must be a prime number

* 2554 is a composite number; spf(2554) = 2+1277 = 1279
* 1279 is a prime number; sum_digits(1279) = 1+2+7+9 = 19
* 19 is a prime number; mult_digits(19) = 1*9 = 9

BARSfunc off-by-one rs42Eval:
40 + sqrt(mult_digits(sum_digits(spf(2554))) = 42+1
* 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

BARSfunc rs37Eval:
40 - sqrt(mult_digits(sum_digits(spf(2554))) = 37
* There was no official rs37Eval when this BARS was created;
* however, MathBabbler was considering adding it.
* Why add rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org
