BARS::Ice Road Truckers in Manitoba, Canada

This road sign was seen while watching Ice Road Truckers.

The road sign says...

+-------------------------+
| <- Oxford House      13 |
| Gods Lake         62 -> |
| Gods River       101 -> |
+-------------------------+
   the numbers are:  13  62  101

   the math is:  62 - 101 % 13 = 101 - 62 + 13

   number system rs42Eval:  13(101 - 62) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   BARSfunc rsAgeEval:  62 - sum_digits(13) + mult_digits(101) = 58
   * MathBabbler was 58 years young when he saw this sign on TV.
   * sum_digits(n) = sum the digits of n
     domain:  n must be a prime number
   * 13 is prime; sum_digits(13) = 1+3 = 4
   * mult_digits(n) = product of the digits of n
     domain:  n must be a prime number
   * 101 is prime; mult_digits(101) = 1*0*1 = 0

   BARSfunc math:  62 / reverse_digits(13) = sum_digits(101)
   * reverse_digits(n) = the digits of n reversed
     domain:  n must be a prime number
   * 13 is prime; reverse_digits(13) = 31
   * 101 is prime; sum_digits(101) = 1+0+1 = 2

   BARSfunc rs42Eval:  101 - 62 + mult_digits(13) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * 13 is prime; mult_digits(13) = 1*3 = 3

   BARSfunc rs37Eval:  101 - 62 + sqrt(sum_digits(13)) = 37
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org
   * 13 is prime; sum_digits(13) = 1+3 = 4

   BARSfunc rsCardinalityEval:  spf(62) % cuberoot(101 + sum_digits(13)!) = 3
   * There are three numbers in this road sign.
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
     domain: n must be a composite number
   * 62 is composite; spf(62) = 2+31 = 33
