   +----------------+
   the numbers are:  10  3  1  2  8  6

   the math is:  sqrt(10 * (2 + 8)) - 3 - 1 = 6

   rsPiEval:  (10 * 3 - 8) / (6 + 2 - 1) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

   rsPhiEval:  (1 + sqrt(10 / 2)) / sqrt(8 * 3 / 6) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rsAgeEval:  10 * 3 + 6 * 2 + 8 + 1 = 51
   * RoadHacker was 51 years young when he found these signs.

   rs42Eval:  10 * 3 + 8 + 6 / 2 + 1 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   more math:  sqrt(10 * 8 + 1) / 3 * 2 = 6

   more math:  sqrt(sqrt(2 * 8)) * sqrt(sqrt(10 + 6)) - 3 = 1

   more math:  (log(10) + log(2 + 8)) * 3 + log(1) = 6
