BARS::10 Miles From Blockrock Station, Kern Plateau, California

This road sign is in the Sequoia National Forest in California.

The road sign says...

   +-----------------------+
   | Blackrock Station  10 |
   | Bonite MDW.         2 |  {MDW. is Meadow}
   | Sherman Jeep RD     4 |  {RD is Road}
   +-----------------------+
   the numbers are:  10  2  4

   the math is:  10 % 4 = 2

   number system math:  102 = sqrt(4)

   number system math:  sqrt(104) = 2

   more math:  gcf(4, 10) = 2

   more math:  2 / sqrt(4) = log(10)

   rsCardinalityEval:  4 - 2 + log(10) = 3
   * There are three numbers in this road sign.

   rsCardinalityEval:  cuberoot(summation(2, sqrt(summation(4, 10)))) = 3
   * summation(4, 10) = 4+5+6+7+8+9+10 = 49; sqrt(49) = 7
   * summation(2, 7) = 2+3+4+5+6+7 = 27
   * There are three numbers in this road sign.

   rs42Eval:  2 + 4 * 10 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  10 + 4! - 2 = 31+1
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

   off-by-one rs37Eval:  4 * 10 - 2 = 37+1
   * 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

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  summation(2, 10) + sqrt(4) = 55+1
   * RoadHacker was 55 years young when he found this road sign.
   * summation(2, 10) = 2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10 = 54

   BARSfunc rsPiEval:  (4! - 2) / spf(10) ~= Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
     domain:  n must be composite number
   * 10 is a composite number; spf(10) = 2+5 = 7
