This road sign was found at the start of Twelvemile Gulch Road in northwest Colorado.

The road sign says...

+-----------------------+ | Twelvemile Gulch Road | | Yampa River 4 mi | | Lily Park 6 mi | | Deerlodge Park 12 mi | +-----------------------+if "Twelvemile" used as the number 12... the numbers are: 12 4 6 12 the math is: (12 + 12) / 4 = 6 otherwise... the numbers are: 4 6 12 the math is: sqrt(4) * 6 = 12## Update::2009.03.27

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #10 of the spring 2009 semester.

if the numbers are: 12 4 6 12 the math is: log(4 + 6) * 12 = 12 rs42Eval: 4! + 12 + 12 - 6 = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" more math: sqrt(sqrt(12 + 4)) * 6 = 12 more math: sqrt(12^(6 - 4)) = 12 if the numbers are: 4 6 12 rs42Eval: 4 * 12 - 6 = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" rs42Eval: 6! / 4! + 12 = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" rsAgeEval: 4 * 12 + defactorial(6) = 51 * MathBabbler was 51 years young when he found this equation more math: 12 / 4 = defactorial(6) [solve for 'n'] 4 * n - 6 = 42 [solve for 'n'] 4! + n + n - 6 = 42
