This road sign was found on Teller One county road in Colorado.

The road sign says...

+-------------------------------+ | Visitor Center 1 mi -> | | U.S. Hwy 24 4 mi -> | | <- 15 mi Cripple Creek | +-------------------------------+the numbers are: 1 24 4 15 the math is: sqrt(24 - 15) + 1 = 4 observe... 24 - 15 = 9 sqrt(9) = 3 3 + 1 = 4 [solve for 'n'] sqrt(24 - 15) + n = 4## Update::2008.11.28

The following road sign evaluations (

rsEvals) were added when this BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week 15 of the fall 2008 semester.the numbers are: 1 24 4 15 rs42Eval: 24 + 15 + 4 - 1 = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" rs50Eval: 24 + 4! + sqrt(sqrt(15 + 1)) = 50 * RoadHacker was 50 years young when he found this sign.## Update::2009.02.06

This BARS was updated after it was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week 4 of the spring 2009 semester.

Since this BARS last update on 2008.11.28, the

`function was added to the BARS function library and the`

defactorial(n)moduloarithmetic operator`became an official BARS operator.`

%the numbers are: 1 24 4 15 the math is: defactorial(24) * 4 - 1 = 15 more math: defactorial(24) - 1 = 15 % 4 more math: sqrt(24 % 15) + 1 = 4 note: The defactorial(n) function also has a corresponding operator n~!, which is a BARS only arithmetic operator. [solve for '24~!'] 24~! * 4 - 1 = 15 [solve for '24 % 15'] sqrt(24 % 15) + 1 = 4
