BARS::37 Miles From Manhattan, Kansas

This road sign is on northbound KS Hwy-177 in Kansas.

The road sign says...

   +-------------------+
   | K - 4          12 |
   | Manhattan      37 |
   | Junction City  37 |
   +-------------------+
   | Speed Limit 45 |
   +----------------+
   the numbers are:  4  12  37  37  45

   the math is:
   
   rsAgeEval:  (37 / 37)^4 * (12 + 45) = 57
   * MathBabbler was 57 years young when he found this equation.

   rsAgeEval:  12 + 45 - (37 / 37)^4 = 56
   rsAgeEval:  4 * sqrt(37 + 12) * cuberoot(45 - 37) = 56
   * RoadHacker was 56 years young when he found this road sign.

   rs42Eval:  (45 - 37) * sqrt(37 - 12) + sqrt(4) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rs37Eval:  45 - 37 + 37 - 12 + 4 = 37
   rs37Eval:  mode(4, 12, 37, 37, 45) = 37
   rs37Eval:  median(4, 12, 37, 37, 45) = 37
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   rsStateEval:  (37 - (45 - 37) - 12) * sqrt(4) = 34
   * Kansas was the 37th state admitted to the Union.

   BARSfunc math:  37 / 37 * (spf(4) + spf(12)) = spf(45)
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
     domain: n must be a composite number
   * spf(4) = 2+2 = 4; spf(12) = 2+2+3 = 7; spf(45) = 3+3+5 = 11

   off-by-one rsHwyEval:  37 + 37 + 45 * sqrt(4) + 12 = 177-1
   * This road sign is on KS Hwy-177.
