BARS::rsAgeEval=51 at Baseline Rd. and I-10 in Tempe, Arizona

These highways signs are at the I-10 westbound entrance ramp on westbound Baseline Road in Tempe, Arizona. [Note: TempeHiker will get a better picture of these highway signs when time permits.]

The highways signs say...

   +------------+ +------------+ +-----------+
   |    East    | |    West    | |     To    |
   |    I-10    | |    I-10    | | US Hwy-60 |
   +------------+ +------------+ + ----------+
   the numbers are:  10  10  60

   rsAgeEval:  60 - 10 + log(10) = 51
   * MathBabbler was 51 years young when he found these signs.

   rs42Eval:  607 + 10 - 10 = 42
   * the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   observe...
      607 = 6 * 7 + 0 * 1 = 42
      base-7 is the "septenary" number system
