BARS::Highway Signs in Hugoton, Kansas

These highway signs are in Hugoton, Kansas. [Note: Kansas was the 34th state admitted to the Union. And RoadHacker was 59 years of age when he found these highway signs.]

The highway signs say...

   +-----------+
   | US Hwy-56 |
   | KS Hwy-25 |
   | KS Hwy-51 |
   +-----------+
   
   the numbers are:  56  25  51

   the math is:  51 + sqrt(25) = 56

   rsCardinalityEval:  cuberoot((56 - 51) * 25) = 3
   * There are three numbers in these highway signs.

   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
     domain: n must be a composite number
        51 is composite: spf(51) = 3+17 = 20
        56 is composite: spf(56) = 2+2+2+7 = 13
        25 is composite: spf(25) = 5+5 = 10

   BARSfunc rsStateEval:  spf(51) + spf(56) + log(spf(25)) = 34
   * Kansas was the 34th state admitted to the Union.

   BARSfunc off-by-rsAgeEval:  spf(51) + spf(56) + 25 = 59-1
   * RoadHacker was 59 years young when he found these highways signs.

   BARSfunc off-by-rs42Eval:  spf(51) + spf(56) + spf(25) = 42+1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
