The road sign says...

   +--------------------+
   | Illinois Hwy-7   3 |
   | Kankakee        40 |
   +--------------------+
   the numbers are:  3  7  40

   rs42Eval:  40 + sqrt(7 - 3) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   off-by-one rsCardinalityEval:  40 / (3 + 7) = 3+1
   off-by-one rsCardinalityEval:  40 % 7 - 3 = 3-1
   off-by-one rsCardinalityEval:  sqrt(40 - (7 - 3)!) = 3+1
   off-by-one rsCardinalityEval:  3! * 7 - 40 = 3-1
   off-by-one rsCardinalityEval:  cuberoot(40 + (7 - 3)!) = 3+1
   off-by-one rsCardinalityEval:  sqrt(sqrt(40 - (7 - 3)!)) = 3-1
   * There are three numbers in this road sign.

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  407 - 3! = 21+1
   * Illinois was the 21st state admitted to the Union.

   off-by-one rs37Eval:  40 - 7 + 3 = 37-1
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   off-by-one rsHwyEval: 3! + 7 + 40 = 52+1
   * This road sign is on US Hwy-52.

   off-by-one BARSfunc math:  3 + 7 = spf(40)-1
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
     domain: n must be a composite number
   * 40 is composite; spf(40) = 2+2+2+5 = 11
