[side-bar] This is BARS# 600 and it was posted on 30 July 2009. BARS# 1 was posted on 15 May 2005 (i.e. 1538 days ago).

The entrance sign says...

```   +---------------------------------+
| Carlsbad Canverns National Park |
|   Park Entrance        0.2 mi.  |
|   Visitor Center       6.8 mi.  |
+---------------------------------+
| Visitor Center Open |
|     8:00 - 7:00     |
|    Mountain Time    |
+---------------------+
```
```   : is used as a delimiter

the numbers are:  0.2  6.8  8  0  7  0

the math is:  8 - 7^0 - 0.2 - 6.8 = 0

rsStateEval:  8 * (0.2 + 6.8)  - 7 - 0! - 0! = 47
* New Mexico was the 47th state admitted to the Union.

rsStateEval:  6.8 / 0.2 + 7 + 8 - 0! - 0! = 47
* New Mexico was the 47th state admitted to the Union.

rs42Eval:  (0.2 + 6.8)! / ((7 - cuberoot(8))!) + 0 + 0 = 42
* 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

rs42Eval:  6.8 / 0.2 + 8 + 7^0 - 0! = 42
* 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

more math:  8! / 7! - 0.2 - 6.8 + 0! = 0

more math:  sqrt(0.2 + 6.8 - sqrt(cuberoot(8) + 7)) - 0! = 0!

more math:  log(8 + 0! + 0!) * (0.2 + 6.8) = 7

more math:  7^0 + (0.2 + 6.8)^0 = cuberoot(8)

more math:  avg(sqrt(summation(0!, 0.2 + 6.8 + 0!)), 8) = 7
* summation(0!, 0.2 + 6.8 + 0!) = summmation(1, 8)
* summmation(1, 8) = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8 = 36
* sqrt(36) = 6; avg(6, 8) = 7

rsPhiEval:  (floor(0.2 * 6.8) + sqrt(7 - 0! - 0!)) / cuberoot(8) = Phi
* Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399
* floor(n) equals the closest integer less than n
* floor(0.2 * 6.8) = floor(1.36) = 1
