BARS::19 Miles From Bryce Canyon in Utah

This road sign is in Utah.

The road sign says...

   +------------------+
   | Cannonville    3 |
   | Tropic         8 |
   | Bryce Canyon  19 |
   +------------------+
   the numbers are:  3  8  19

   the math is: cuberoot(8 + 19) = 3

   rsAgeEval:  3 * 19 - cuberoot(8) = 55
   * MathBabbler was 55 years young when he created this BARS.

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  3 * 19 - cuberoot(8) = 54+1
   * RoadHacker was 54 years young when he found this road sign.

   off-by-one PrimeRS:  3  8-1  19  are all prime numbers

   off-by-one rsPiEval:  (3 + 19) / (8-1) ~= Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)

   off-by-one rs42Eval:  cuberoot(8) * 19 + 3 = 42-1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   off-by-one rs42Eval:  3 * 8 + 19 = 42+1
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   BARSfunc math:  3^cuberoot(8) = mult_digits(19)
   * mult_digits(n) = product of the digits of n
     domain:  n must be a prime number
   * 19 is a prime number; mult_digits(19) = 1*9 = 9

   BARSfunc rsAgeEval:  8! / 6! - log(sum_digits(19)) = 55
   * MathBabbler was 55 years young when he created this BARS.
   * sum_digits(n) = sum the digits of n
     domain:  n must be a prime number
   * 19 is a prime number; sum_digits(19) = 1+9 = 10
   off-by-one BARSfunc rsAgeEval:  8! / 6! - log(sum_digits(19)) = 54+1
   * RoadHacker was 54 years young when he found this road sign.

   BARSfunc off-by-one rsStateEval:  8! / 6! - sum_digits(19) = 45+1
   * Utah was the 45th state admitted to the Union.

   * I've been thinking of adding the rs37Eval to the rsEvals.
   rs37Eval:  8! / 6! - 19 - 37
