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: log_{3}(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.
