These road signs are in downtown Mountainair, New Mexico.

The road signs say...

+-------------+ | US Hwy-60 | | East | West | +-------------+ +--------------------------+ | Salinas Pueblo Missions | | National Monument | | Gran Quivira Ruins 25 | | Visitor Center 1/4 | | Abo Ruins 9 | +--------------------------+the numbers are: 60 25 (1/4) 9 the math is: 60 / sqrt(9) * (1/4) = sqrt(25) rsAgeEval: 60 - sqrt(25) - 9^(sqrt(1/4)) = 52 * RoadHacker was 52 years young when he found these signs another rsAgeEval: 60 - (25 - 9) * sqrt(1/4) = 52 * RoadHacker was 52 years young when he found these signs BARSfunc rs42Eval: 60 - 25 + 9 - sqrt(reciprocal(1/4)) = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" off-by-one math: 25 + 9 / (1/4) = 60 + 1## Update::2009.10.01

This BARS was selected to be one of the BARS of the Week for week #7 of the fall 2009 semester.

the numbers are: 60 25 (1/4) 9 more math: sqrt(25 * 9) / (1/4) = 60 BARSfunc rsPiEval: (60 + sqrt(9)!) / (25 - reciprocal(1/4)) = Pi * 66/21 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth observe... summation(9, 25) = 289; sqrt(289) = 17
