```   the numbers are:  2500  2300   435   300   1810
1650  1000  1960  1850   1500

A = sqrt(2500) / (1960 - 1500 - 435) = 2
B = log(1810 + 1850 - 1650 - 2300 + 300) = log(10) = 1

the math is:  A + B = log(1000)

observe...
sqrt(2500) = 50
1960 - 1500 - 435 = 25
50 / 25 = 2
1810 + 1850 - 1650 - 2300 + 300 = 10
log(10) = 1
log(1000) = 3
