BARS::TV Road Sign From Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

This road sign was seen while watching Man Versus Food on TV. The road sign is in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The road sign says...

   +---------------------------+
   | East US Hwy-22  US Hwy-30 |
   |            To             |
   |   South      North        |
   | US Hwy-79  US Hwy-279     |
   |        Pittsburgh         |
   +---------------------------+
   the numbers are:  22  30  79  279

   rsStateEval:  79 % (279 % (30 - 22)) = 2
   * Pennsylvania was the 2nd state admitted to the Union.

   rsNumberSystem, rsStateEval:  (22 + 30 - 279 % 79)2 = 2
   * Pennsylvania was the 2nd state admitted to the Union.

   rs42Eval:  sqrt((279 % 79)^cuberoot(30 - 22)) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   ... math playground...

   279 % 79 = 42; 279 % 30 = 9; 279 % 22 = 15
   (279 - 79) % 30 = 20; (279 - 79) % 22 = 2 
   summation(22, 30) = 234
