BARS::3 Miles From Mammoth Lakes in California

This road sign is just off of US Hwy-395 in California.

The road sign says...

   +--------------------------+
   | Mammoth Lakes          3 |
   | Mammoth Ski Area       9 |
   | Devils Postpile   CLOSED |
   +--------------------------+
   the numbers are:  3  9

   the math is:  sqrt(9) = 3

   rs42Eval:  summation(3, 9) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * summation(3, 9) = 3+4+5+6+7+8+9 = 42

   rsCardinalityEval:  3! / sqrt(9) = 2
   * There are two numbers in this road sign.

   rsCardinalityEval:  log3(9) = 2
   * There are two numbers in this road sign.

   BARSfunc rsCardinalityEval:  sqrt(9 - spf(3!)) = 2
   * There are two numbers in this road sign.
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
     domain:  n must be composite number
   * 6 is a composite number; spf(6) = 2+3 = 5

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  summation(3!, 9) = 31-1
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.
   * summation(6, 9) = 6+7+8+9 = 30

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  3! * 9 = 55-1
   * RoadHacker was 55 years young when he found this road sign.

   off-by-one rsCardinalityEval:  9 / 3 = 2+1
   * There are two numbers in this road sign.

   off-by-one rsCardinalityEval:  9 - 3! = 2+1
   * There are two numbers in this road sign.

   BARSfunc off-by-one rsStateEval:  sqrt(9)! * spf(3!) = 31-1
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.
