The road sign says...

   +----------------------------+
   | Jct. Route 54 & 19       5 |
   | Mexico                  17 |
   | Fulton                  42 |
   +----------------------------+
   the numbers are:  54  19  5  17  42

   rsPiEval:  (17 + 5) / (19 - (54 - 42)) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)
   * 3.1415926535897932384626

   rsStateEval:  ((54 % 19 / (42 % 5 + 19 - 17))! = 24
   * Missouri was the 24th state admitted to the Union.

   rs37Eval:  5^(19 - 17) + (54 - 42) = 37
   rs37Eval:  sqrt(cuberoot(17 + 42 + 5)) + (54 - 19) = 37
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   rs42Eval:  (54 - 42 + 5 * sqrt(17 + 19) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsAgeEval:  54 + (42 / (17 % 5)) - 19 = 56
   * RoadHacker was 56 years young when he found this road sign.

   off-by-one rs42Eval:  sqrt(17 + 42 + 5) + (54 - 19) = 42+1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   BARSfunc rsPhiEval:  (spf(42) - spf(54) + sqrt(5)) / (19 - 17) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399
