The road sign says...

+-----------------+ | Harrisburg 27 | | Gering 41 | | Scottsbluff 44 | +-----------------+the numbers are: 27 41 44 the math is: 44 / (41 - 27) ~= Pi (3.14) observe... 41 - 27 = 14 44 / 14 = 3.14285714 Pi = 3.14159265 44 / 14 equals Pi rounded to the nearest hundreth (3.14) [solve for 'n'] 44 / (41 - n) = Pi## Update::2010.03.05

This BARS was updated for week eight of the Spring 2010 semester.

the numbers are: 27 41 44 the math is: 44 - cuberoot(27) = 41 rs42Eval: 44 - 41 % cuberoot(27) = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" rsAgeEval: 41 % cuberoot(27)! + 44 = 49 * RoadHacker was 49 years young when he found this road sign. BARSfunc math: sqrt(spf(27)) + 41 = 44 * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n * spf(27) = 3+3+3 = 9 BARSfunc rsAgeEval: spf(44) / cuberoot(27) + 44 = 49 * RoadHacker was 49 years young when he found this road sign. * spf(44) = 2+2+11 = 15 BARSfunc rsAgeEval: cuberoot(27) + sum_digits(41) + 44 = 52 * MathBabbler was 52 years young when he found this equation. * sum_digits(n) = sum the digits of n; domain: n must be prime * sum_digits(41) = 4+1 = 5 [note: 41 is prime]
