### BARS::6 Miles From Earth on US Hwy-70 in Texas

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

```   +---------------+
| 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:  467 - 6 = 28
* Texas was the 28th state admitted to the Union.
