   +----------------+
   | Buckeye      3 |
   | Jct I-10     5 |
   | Phoenix     35 |
   +----------------+
   the numbers are:  3  10  5  35

   the math is:  35 / 5 + 3 = 10

   more math:  35 % 3 * 5 = 10

   rsPhiEval:  (log(10) + sqrt(5)) / (35 % 3) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rs42Eval:  35 + 5 + 3 - log(10) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rs42Eval:  (3!)! / 10 - 35 + 5 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsStateEval:  summation(3, 5) + 35 + log(10) = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.
   * summation(3, 5) = 3+4+5 = 12
   
   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  35 + 10 + 5 + 3 = 52+1

   rsHwyEval:  5! / 3 + 10 + 35 = 85
   * This road sign is on AZ Hwy-85.

   rsTweetLenEval:  5! / 3! + sqrt(35 - 10)! = 140
   * 140 is the maximum length of a Twitter posting (tweet).

   BARSfunc math:  spf(35) - 5 + 3 = 10
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
   * spf(35) = 5+7 = 12
