BARS::US Hwy-82 East in Texas

These highway signs are at the New Mexico border in Texas.

The highway signs say...

   +-------+ +-------+
   |  East | | Texas |
   | US 82 | |  769  |
   +-------+ +-------+
   the numbers are:  769  82

   sum_digits(769) = 22
   split_into_squares_sum(82) = { 49, 25, 4, 4 }

   the numbers become:  22  49  25  4  4

   the math is:  4 / (49 - 25 - 22) = sqrt(4)

   Note:  769 is prime and so is reverse_digits(769)

The picture in this BARS was taken during the summer of 2001. MathBabbler started doing BARS during May of 2005.

These highway signs became a BARS after the sum_digits(n) and split_into_squares_sum(n) functions were created.
