This road sign is on eastbound US Hwy-70 in Texas.

The road sign says...

+---------------+ | Earth 6 | | Plainview 46 | +---------------+the numbers are: 6 46 rsAgeEval: 6 + 46 = 52 * RoadHacker was 52 years young when he found this road sign BARSfunc math: sqrt(spf(46)) = spf(6) * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n * spf(46) = 2 + 23 = 25; sqrt(25) = 5 * spf(6) = 2 + 3 = 5 BARSfunc rsStateEval: spf(46) + defactorial(6) = 28 * Texas was the 28th state admitted to the Union. split_into_squares_sum(46) = { 36, 9, 1 } the numbers become: 6 36 9 1 the math is: 6 * sqrt(9)! * 1 = 36 rsAgeEval: 6 + 36 + 9 + 1 = 52 * RoadHacker was 52 years young when he found this road sign rs42Eval: 6 + 36 + log(9 + 1) = 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" more math: sqrt(sqrt(summation(1, 9) + 36))! = 6 * summation(1, 9) = 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9 = 45 * sqrt(45 + 36) = sqrt(81) = 9; sqrt(9) = 3 * 3! = 3 * 2 * 1 = 6## Update::2009.09.20

MathBabbler was creating some Earth related number BABs (nBABs) so he decided to re-examine this BARS for more equations.

the numbers are: 6 46 number system rs42Eval: (6 + 46)_{8}= 42 * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything" number system rsStateEval: 46_{7}- 6 = 28 * Texas was the 28th state admitted to the Union.
