```+-------------------------+ +------------------+
|                 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.
