BARS::Approaching I-25 on US Hwy-50 in Pueblo, Colorado

These road signs were found on westbound US Hwy-50 in Pueblo, Colorado.

The road signs say...

   +-----------------------+ +-----------------------------+
   |      I-25 South       | | I-25 North   US Hwy-50 West |
   |        Pueblo         | |          Denver             |
   | Central Business Dist | |        Canon City           |
   |       Exit Only       | |        Exit Only            |
   +-----------------------+ +-----------------------------+
   the numbers are:  25  25  50

   the math is:  25 + 25 = 50
Update::2009.10.09

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #8 of the fall 2009 semester.

   the numbers are:  25  25  50

   rsAgeEval:  50 - 25 / 25 = 49
   * RoadHacker was 49 years young when he found these road signs.

   rsHwyEval:  sqrt((25 + 25) * 50) = 50
   * This road sign is on US Hwy-50.

   BARSfunc rsAgeEval:  50 + (sqrt(defactorial(sqrt(25)! / sqrt(25)))) = 52
   * MathBabbler was 52 years young when he found this equation.

   observe...
      sqrt(25) = 5 and 5! = 120
      120 / sqrt(25) = 120 / 5 = 24
      defactorial(24) = 4 because 4! = 4*3*2*1 = 24
      sqrt(4) = 2 and 50 + 2 = 52

   BARSfunc math: spf(25) * sqrt(25) = 50
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
   * spf(25) = 5 + 5 = 10

   BARSfunc rsStateEval:  ceil(avg(sqrt(25) * sqrt(25), 50)) = 38
   * Colorodo was the 38th state admitted to the Union
   
   observe...
      sqrt(25) = 5 and 5 * 5 = 25
      avg(25, 50) = 75 / 2 = 37.5
      ceil(37.5) = 38
