BARS::18 Miles From Lordsburg on I-10 in New Mexico

This road sign is on eastbound I-10 in New Mexico.

The road sign says...

   +--------------------+
   | NM Hwy-80 South  2 |
   | Lordsburg       18 |
   | Deming          78 |
   +--------------------+
   the numbers are:  80  2  18  78

   the math is:  sqrt(sqrt(78 + 18 - 80)) = 2

   rsHwyEval:  (2 + 18) / (80 - 78) = 10
   * This road sign is on I-10.

   rsStateEval:  78 / 2 + 80 % 18 = 47
   * New Mexico was the 47th state admitted to the Union.

   BARSfunc rsStateEval:  spf(80) + spf(78) + spf(18) * 2 = 47
   * New Mexico was the 47th state admitted to the Union.
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
   * spf(80)=2+2+2+2+5=13; spf(78)=2+3+13=18; spf(18)=2+3+3=8

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  80 / 2 + 78 % 18 = 47-1
   * New Mexico was the 47th state admitted to the Union.
