BARS::20 Miles From Mimbres on NM Hwy-61 in New Mexico

This road sign is on NM Hwy61 in New Mexico.

The road sign says...

   +---------------------+
   | Jct NM 152       14 |
   | San Lorenzo      16 |
   | Mimbres          20 |
   +---------------------+
   the numbers are:  152  14  16  20

   rsAgeEval:  14 * 16 - 152 - 20 = 52
   * RoadHacker was 52 years young when he found this sign

   rs42Eval:  152 - sqrt(sqrt(16)) - 20 - 14 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   BARSfunc rsStateEval:  reverse_digits(16 * 14 - 152) + 20 = 47
   * New Mexico was the 47th admitted to the Union

   BARSfunc rsStateEval:  spf(152) + 20 + 16 - 14 = 47
   * New Mexico was the 47th admitted to the Union

   BARSfunc math:  summation(14, 16) = 20 = spf(152)

   BARsfunc rsPiEval:  
      (spf(152) - sqrt(spf(14))) / (spf(20) - cuberoot(spf(16))) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

   observe...
      spf(152) = 2 + 2 + 2 + 19 = 25
      spf(14) = 2 + 7 = 9; sqrt(9) = 3
      ...25 - 3 = 22
      spf(20) = 2 + 2 + 5 = 9
      spf(16) = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 8; cuberoot(8) = 2
      ...9 - 2 = 7
      22 / 7 ~= 3.14
