   |  From Crystal Pier To: |
   | Tower 10           1/4 |
   | York Ct.           1/2 |
   | Austin Ct.           1 |
   | El Carmel        1 1/4 |
   | Jersey Ct.       1 1/2 |
   | Tower 2              2 |
   | End of Sea Wall  2 1/2 |
   | Jetty            2 3/4 |
   +------------------------+
   the numbers are:  10  (1/4)  (1/2)  1  (1 1/4)   (1 1/2)
                      2    2   (2 1/2)    (2 3/4)

   A = 1/2 - 1/4 = 1/4 = 0.25
   B = 2 3/4 - 2 1/2 = 1/4 = 0.25
   C = 1 1/2 - 1 1/4 = 1/4 = 0.25

   the math is:  2 / A - 10 * (B + C) - 1 = 2
                 2 / 0.25 - 10 * (0.25 + 0.25) - 1 = 2

   rsPiEval:  
   (10*2+2)/((1/(1/4)/(1/2))-(2 3/4+1 1/4)/(2 1/2+1 1/2)) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

   rsPhiEval: 
   ((2 3/4+1 1/4)/(2 1/2+1 1/2)+sqrt(10/2))/sqrt(1/(1/4)/(1/2)/2) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rsAgeEval:
   ((2 1/2+1 1/2)+(2 3/4+1 1/4))*10/2+2*(1/(1/4))+(2/(1/2)) = 52
   * RoadHacker was 52 years young when he found this sign

   A = 2 1/2 + 1 1/2 = 4
   B = 2 3/4 + 1 1/4 = 4

   rsPiEval:  2 + 1 + (A / (1/4) - B * (1/2)) / 10^2 = Pi
              2 + 1 + (4 / (1/4) - 4 * (1/2)) / 10^2 = Pi
   * 3.14 is Pi rounded to the nearest hundredth
