The road sign says...

   +--------------------+
   |  Lake Havasu City  |
   | use Arizona Exit 9 |
   |      27 miles      |
   +--------------------+
   the numbers are:  9  27

   the math is:  sqrt(9) = cuberoot(27)

   rs42Eval:  summation(cuberoot(27), 9) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * summation(3, 9) = 3+4+5+6+7+8+9 = 42

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  sqrt(9) + 27 = 31-1
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  summation(cuberoot(27)!, 9) = 31-1
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.
   * cuberoot(27) = 3; 3! = 6; summation(6, 9) = 6+7+8+9 = 30

   ...if the billboard is included...

   the numbers are:  9  27  24  1000

   the math is:  24 + 9 / log(1000) = 27

   rsAgeEval:  27 + 24 + sqrt(9) / log(1000) = 52
   * RoadHacker was 52 years young when he found this road sign.
