Road Sign Evaluations (rsEvals) were created on 18 March 2006; however, since that time, their usage has evolved. On 30 May 2008, this BAB was modified to define valid rsEvals. rsEval (road sign evaluation) involves applying arithmetic to the numbers in a road sign and having the result evaluate

~~to a highway sign for which we have a picture~~to any or all of the following.

- the highway number on which the sign is located (rsHwyEval)
- RoadHacker's age was when he found the sign (rsAgeEval)
- the number 42 (rs42Eval)
- approximates 3.14 (rsPiEval)
- approximates 1.61803399 (rsPhiEval)
- one of the numbers in the sign that has been duped (rsDupEval)

[added 07 February 2009]+----------------+ | Gooland 3 | | Happytown 39 | +----------------+ rsHwyEval if found on highways numbered 13 (39 / 3), 36 (39 - 3), 42 (39 + 3), 117 (3 * 39), and so on rsAgeEval if RoadHacker was 42, 45 (39 + 3!), ... years of age when he discovered the sign rs42Eval if 3 and 39 can be used in an arithmetic expression such that it evaluates to 42 (e.g. 3 + 39) rsDupEval if the 3 is duped such that sqrt(39 - 3) = 3!

~~A~~Golden RSevalis a road sign that evaluates to the highway on which it was found.`Golden RSevals`

have been replaced with`rsHwyEvals`

.The following sign would be a

`rsPiEval`

.+----------------+ | Fooville 7 | | Moohaven 22 | +----------------+ the math is: 22 / 7 = Pi (3.14)The following sign would be a

`rsPhiEval`

.+----------------+ | Foodale 1 | | Gootown 2 | | Mooplains 5 | +----------------+ the math is: (1 + sqrt(5)) / 2 = Phi (1.61803399)
