BARS::6 Miles From Sacramento Peak in New Mexico

This road sign is on NM Hwy-6563, which is used to get to the National Solar Observatory in New Mexico.

The road sign says...

   +-----------------------+
   | Sacramento Peak     6 |
   | Timberon           20 |
   | Bluff Springs       4 |
   +-----------------------+
   the numbers are:  6  20  4

   the math is:  summation(sqrt(4), 6) = 20
   * sqrt(4) = 2; summation(2, 6) = 2+3+4+5+6 

   more math:  20 % 6 = sqrt(4)

   more math:  gcf(6, 20) = sqrt(4)

   off-by-one math:  20 / 4 = 6 - 1

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  6 + 20 * sqrt(4) = 47 - 1
   * New Mexico was the 47th state admitted to the Union.

   BARSfunc math:  20 / 4 = spf(6)
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
   * spf(6) = 2+3 = 5
   * BARSfunc is a function in the BARS function library

   BARSfunc math:  sqrt(spf(20)) * sqrt(4) = 6
   * spf(20) = 2+2+5 = 9

   BARSfunc math:  sqrt(4 * spf(20)) = 6

   BARSfunc off-by-one rs42Eval:  defactorial(6) + 20 * sqrt(4) = 42 + 1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * defactorial(6) = 3 because 3! = 6

   If the 6 was a 7... rsPiEval:  (20 + sqrt(4)) / (6 + 1) ~= Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

   off-by-one math:  (sqrt(sqrt(20 - 4)) + 1)! = 6
   * sqrt(20 - 4) = sqrt(16) = 4; sqrt(4) = 2; 2+1 = 3; 3! = 6

   dup(4) = 4... the numbers become:  6  20  4  4

   dup math:  6 * 4 = 20 + 4

   more dup math:  20 + 6 - sqrt(4) = 4!

   more dup math:  (4! - 20)! / 6 = 4

   more dup math:  sqrt(sqrt(20 - 4)) = 6 - 4
