### BARS::Imperial Dam on the Colorodo River in California

```   +--------------------+
| Cozy Cove      1/2 |
| Senator Wash     1 |
| Squaw Lake       2 |
----------------------
| Beehive Mesa   1/2 |
| Dog Patch      1/2 |
| Coyote Ridge     1 |
| North Shore      6 |
| Ferguson Lake   10 |
+--------------------+
```
```   the numbers are:  (1/2)  1  2  (1/2)  (1/2)  1  6  10

the math is:  6 * (1/2) * (1 + 1) = 10 * (1/2) + 2 * (1/2)

observe...
left side:
6 * (1/2) = 6/2 = 3
(1 + 1) = 2
3 * 2 = 6

right side:
10 * (1/2) = 10/2 = 5
2 * (1/2) = 2/2 = 1
5 + 1 = 6

more math:  6 / (1/2) * (1 + 1) = 10 / (1/2) + 2 / (1/2)

observe...
left side:
6 / (1/2) = 6 * 2 = 12
(1 + 1) = 2
12 * 2 = 24

right side:
10 / (1/2) = 10 * 2 = 20
2 / (1/2) = 2 * 2 = 4
20 + 4 = 24

more math:  (1 / ((1/2) * (1/2) * (1/2))) * (1 / 2) + 6 = 10

observe...
(1/2) * (1/2) * (1/2) = (1/8)
1 / (1/8) = 8
8 * (1 / 2) = 8 / 2 = 4
4 + 6 = 10

[solve for 'n]  6 * n * (1 + 1) = 10 * n + 2 * n

##### Update::2009.09.04

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #3 of the fall 2009 semester.

```   the numbers are:  (1/2)  1  2  (1/2)  (1/2)  1  6  10

rsPhiEval:  (1/2) + sqrt((1 - (1/2) - (1/2) + 1 - 6 + 10)) / 2 = Phi
* Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

rsStateEval:  (1/2) / (1/2) / (1/2) + 6 * 10 / 2 - 1 / 1 = 31
* California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

rsAgeEval:  (1/2) / (1/2) / (1/2) / 2 + (6 - 1) * 10 + 1 = 52
* MathBabbler was 52 years young when he found this equation.

rsAgeEval:  (6 - 1) * 10 * 1 * ((1/2) / (1/2) / (1/2) / 2) = 50
* RoadHacker was 50 years young when he found this road sign.

rsAgeEval:  (1/2) / (1/2) / (1/2) + (6 / 2 + 1) * 10 * 1 = 42
* 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

rsPiEval:  ((1/2) / (1/2) / (1/2) * 10 + 1 * 2) / (6 + 1) = Pi
* 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth
