This road sign is on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai.

The road sign says...

+--------------------+ | Kalaheo 4 mi | | 6 km | | Lihue 16 mi | | 26 km | |--------------------| | McBryde Mill 2 mi | | 3 km | +--------------------+the numbers are: 4 6 16 26 2 3 the math is: (4 * 6) / 3 + 2 + 16 = 26## Update::2009.08.27

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #2 of the fall 2009 semester.

the numbers are: 4 6 16 26 2 3 the math is: (6 + 4) / (26 - 16) + 2 = 3 more math: 16 / (26 - (6 * 4)) = 2^3 rs42Eval: 16 + 26 + (6 / 3) - (4 / 2) = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" rsStateEval: 16 + 26 + (4 + 6) / 2 + 3 = 50 * Hawaii was the 50th state admitted to the Union. rsAgeEval: 16 + 26 + 4 + 6 + 2 - 3 = 51 * RoadHacker was 51 years young when he found this roadsign. rsAgeEval: 16 + 26 + (2 + 3) * (6 - 4) = 52 * MathBabbler was 52 years young when he found this equation. rsPiEval: (26 - 4) / (16 - 6 - 3! / 2!) ~= Pi * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth rsPiEval: ((26 - 4) * 2) / (sqrt(sqrt(16)) + 6 + 3!) ~= Pi * 44/14 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth rsPhiEval: ((6 / 3!) + sqrt((26 - 16) / 2)) / sqrt(4) = Phi * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399 rsPhiEval: ((3 - 2) + sqrt(6 - log(26 - 16))) / sqrt(4) = Phi * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399
