+-------------------------+ +------------------+
|                 Exit 16 | |          Exit 17 |
| Long Rd                 | | Boone's Crossing |
| Chesterfield Airport Rd | +------------------+
|          1 Mile         |
+-------------------------+
   the numbers are:  16  1  17

   the math is:  16 + 1 = 17

   rs42Eval:  sqrt(16)! + 1 + 17 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsStateEval:  (16 / sqrt(17 - 1))! = 24
   * Missouri was the 24th state admitted to the Union.

   BARSfunc number system rsDupEval: 1716 / dup(16)dup(17) = 1
   * dup(n) = n  make a copy of n
   * dup(17) = 17; dup(16) = 16

   ... the gantry had a Ramp 40 MPH sign ...

   the numbers are:  16  1  17  40

   the math is:  40 % (1 + 17) = sqrt(16)

   rsAgeEval:  17! / 16! + 1 + 40 = 58
   rsAgeEval:  40 + 16 + sqrt(sqrt(17 - 1)) = 58
   * MathBabbler was 58 years young when he saw these signs.

   rs42Eval:  17 + 40 - 16 + 1 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsHwyEval:  40 + ((17 - 1) / sqrt(16))! = 64
   * These signs are on I-64.

   rsCardinality:  log(40 / sqrt(16)) * sqrt(17 - 1) = 4
   * There are four numbers in these signs.

   rsStateEval:  (log(40 / sqrt(16)) * sqrt(17 - 1))! = 24
   * Missouri was the 24th state admitted to the Union.
