### BARS::Northbound I-294 in Chicago, Illinois

RoadHacker has driven past a set of road signs on northbound I-294 in Chicago, Illinois, numerous times but he has never gotten a picture. RoadHacker drove past the road signs on Memorial Day 2009 (May 25th) and he remembered the numbers in the road signs.

```   +-----------------------+
| I-294           I-290 |
| IL Hwy-20   IL Hwy-64 |
+-----------------------+
```
```   the numbers are:  294  290  20  64

the math is:  sqrt(20 - cuberoot(64)) + 290 = 294

more math:  294 % 290 = 64 % 20

rs42Eval:  64 - 20 - sqrt(294 - 290) = 42
* 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

rsStateEval:  20 + cuberoot(64) / (294 - 290) = 21
* Illinois was the 21st state admitted to the Union

rsAgeEval:  20 + sqrt(64) + (294 - 290)! = 52
* MathBabbler was 52 years young when he posted this BARS

off-by-one rsAgeEval: 20 + sqrt(64) + (294 - 290)! = 51 + 1
* RoadHacker was 51 years young when he last saw these signs

more math:  sqrt(sqrt(20 - cuberoot(64))) = gcf(290, 294)

more math:  294 - 290 = gcf(20, 64)
```

Note: This BARS was posted on MathBabbler's 52nd birthday.
