   +------------------+
   the numbers are:  1  4  5  10  3

   the math is:  4 / (10 / 5) + 1 = 3

   [solve for 'n']  n / (10 / 5) + 1 = 3

   more math:  5 * 3 - 10 - 4 = 1

   [solve for 'n']  5 * n - 10 - 4 = 1

   more math:  10 * 3 / 5 = (4 - 1)!

   rsAgeEval:  (10 * 3 + 4 * 5)^1 = 50 
   * RoadHacker was 50 years young when he found this sign.

   another rsAgeEval:  5 * 10 * (4 - 3) * 1 = 50

   rs42Eval:  10 * 5 - 4 - 3 - 1 = 42
   * the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsPhiEval:  (1 + sqrt(5)) / (4 - 10 / 5) = Phi (1.61803399)
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399
