   +----------------+
   the numbers are:  10  21  31

The following road sign evaluations were added on 28 November 2008 as a result of this BARS being used as one of the BARS of the Week for week 15 of the fall 2008 semester.

   rs42Eval:  21 + 31 - 10 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   [solve for 'n']  21 + 31 - n = 42

   rsAgeEval:  21 + 31 - 10base-2 = 50
   * RoadHacker found this sign when he was 50 years young.

   rsAgeEval:  21 + 31 - log(10) = 51
   * MathBabbler was 51 years young when he inserted this equation.

   [exercise]  log(10) = ______
