BARS::14 Miles From Goffs in California

This road sign is on southbound US Hwy-95 in California.

The road sign says...

   +--------------+
   | Needles   17 |
   | Barstow  150 |
   | Goffs     14 |
   +--------------+
   the numbers are:  17  150  14

   the math is:  150 % 17 = 14

   off-by-one rsPiEval:  (17 + 150 + 14 - 1) degrees = Pi radians

   BARSfunc off-by-one rsStateEval:  17 + spf(150)! / 14! = 31+1
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
   * spf(150) = 2+3+5+5 = 15
