BARS::13 Miles From California City in Mojave, California

This road sign is just north of CA Hwy-58 in Mojave, California.

The road sign says...

   +---------------------+
   | Junction 14       3 |
   | California City  13 |
   +---------------------+
   the numbers are:  14  3  13

   rs42Eval:  3 * (14! / 13!) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsPiString:  "3" + "." + "14! / 13!" = "3.14"
   * 3.14 is Pi rounded to the nearest hundredth

   split_into_squares_sum(13) = { 9, 4 }

   the numbers become:  14  3  9  4

   the math is:  sqrt(4)^3 + sqrt(9)! = 14

   sum_prime_factors(14) = 9

   the numbers become:  9  3  9  4

   the math is:  sqrt(9 * 4) + 3 = 9

   more math:  9 * 9 = 3^4

   more math:  9 / 9 + 3 = 4

   more math:  (9 - 9)! + 3 = 4

   more math:  (sqrt(9) + sqrt(9)) / sqrt(4) = 3
