### BARS::16 Miles From Rio Communities in New Mexico

This road sign is on northbound NM Hwy-304 in New Mexico.

```   +----------------------+
| Veguita            6 |
| Rio Communities   16 |
| Hwy-47  NM 47     17 |
+----------------------+
```
```   the numbers are:  6  16  47  47  17

the math is:  17^(47 - 47) = log(16 - 6)

rsPiEval:  (6 + 16) / sqrt(47 + sqrt(cuberoot(47 + 17))) = Pi
* 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

rs42Eval:  47 - 6 + sqrt(16) / cuberoot(17 + 47) = 42
* 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

rsAgeEval:  47 + 6 - sqrt(16) / cuberoot(17 + 47) = 52
* RoadHacker was 52 years young when he found this road sign

rsStateEval:  47 + 6 - sqrt(sqrt(16)) - cuberoot(17 + 47) = 47
* New Mexico was the 47th state admitted to the Union

more math:  47 % (47 % 17) - 6 = sqrt(sqrt(16))
* % is the modulo (or remainder) operator
* a % b equals the remainder when a ÷ b
* 47 % 17 = 13; 47 % 13 = 8
