   the math is:  2 + 3 + 5 + 6 - 9 / 9 = 15

   more math:  mode(3^2,5,6,9,15) = 9

   rsPhiEval:  ((9 / 9) + sqrt(5)) / (15 / 3 - 6 / 2) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rsPiEval:  (15 + 9 / 9 + 3!) / (6 * 2 - 5) ~= Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)
     3.1415926535897932384626

   rsStateEval:  9 + 9 + 15 + 5 - 6 + 2 - 3 = 31
   * California was the 31st state admitted to the Union.

   rs37Eval:  9 + 9 + 15 + (6 + 2) / (5 - 3) = 37
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   rs42Eval:  9 + 9 + 15 + (6 - 5) * 3^2 = 42 
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsAgeEval:  9 * (15 - 9) + 6 - 5 / (2 + 3) = 59
