BARS::Nearing Phoenix on I-10 West in Arizona

This road sign is on westbound I-10 just south of the Valley of the Sun in Arizona.

The road sign says...

   +-------------------+
   | Jct 347 south   2 |
   | Jct 202         5 |
   | Jct 60         12 |
   +-------------------+
   the numbers are:  347  202   60   12   5   2

   the math is:   347 - 202 - 5! = (60 / 12)^2

   rsHwyEval: sqrt(sqrt(summation(202, 347) - 60 - 12 - 5) / 2) = 10
   * This road sign was found on I-10

   observe...
      summation(202, 347) = 40,077
      40,077 - 60 - 12 - 5 = 40,000
      sqrt(40,000) = 200
      200 / 2 = 100
      sqrt(100) = 10

   [solve for 'n']  347 - 202 - n = (60 / 12)^2
Update::2009.02.11

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #5 of the spring 2009 semester.

   the numbers are:  347  202   60   12   5   2

   the math is:  sqrt((60 / sqrt((347 - 202) - 5!))^2) = 12

   off-by-one rs42Eval:  347 - 202 - 60 - 2^5 - 12 = 42 - 1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   dup(12) = 12

   the numbers become:  347  202   60   12   5   2  12

   rsDupEval:  60 / ((347 - 202) / 5 - (2 * 12)) = 12

   miscellaneous observations...
      347 - 202 = 347 mod 202 = 145
