   | Phoenix      59 |
   +-----------------+

   the numbers are:  27  10  29  59  125

   the math is:  27 + 10 + 29 + 59 = 125

   rs42Eval:  59 - 29 + 10 + cuberoot(125) - cuberoot(27) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsStateEval:  59 - 29 + 10 + cuberoot(125) + cuberoot(27) = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   off-by-one rsAgeEval:  59 - 29 + 10 + cuberoot(125) + cuberoot(27)! = 52-1
