### BARS::Road Sign From Costa Rica

This road sign was seen on a House Hunters International episode that was shot in Costa Rica.

The road sign says...

```   +---------------------+
| Playa Ocotal      3 |
| Bahia Pez Vela    3 |
| Playa Hermosa     9 |
| Playa Panama     11 |
+---------------------+
```
```   the numbers are:  3  3  9  11

the math is:  3 * (11 - 9) = 3!

more math:  3^cuberoot(11-3) = 9

more math:  mode(3, 3, 11) = sqrt(9)

rsPiEval:  ((9 + 11) * 3 * 3) degrees = Pi radians

rsAgeEval:  3 * 9 * cuberoot(11 - 8) = 54
* MathBabbler was 54 years young when he saw this road sign on TV.

...math playground...

summation(9, 11) = 30; summation(3, 9) = 42
summation(3, 3!) = 18; summation(3!, 11) = 51

[exercise] Find equations using the numbers
found in the math playground.

This BARS was posted on 2 July 2011 (yesterday) without the numbers found in the math playground being used to find equations (i.e. no equationeering, where equationeer is defined to be finder of equations).

```   more math:  sqrt(summation(9, 11) + 3!) = 3!

rs42Eval:  summation(3, 9) * ceil(3 / 11) = 42
rs42Eval:  summation(3, 9)^floor(3 / 11)! = 42
rs42Eval:  sqrt(summation(3, 9)^(11 % 3)) = 42
rs42Eval:  summation(9, 11) + 3! + 3! = 42
* 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

rsAgeEval:  summation(3!, 11) + 9 / 3 = 54
* MathBabbler was 54 years young when he saw this road sign TV.
* summation(6, 11) = 6+7+8+9+10+11 = 51

the math was:  3 * (11 - 9) = 3!

[solve for 'n']  3 * (11 - 9) = n
[solve for 'n']  n * (11 - 9) = 3!
[solve for 'n']  3 * (n - 9) = 3!
[solve for 'n']  3 * (11 - n) = 3!
