   the numbers are:  119  8  85  10  6

   the math is:  sqrt(119 - 85 + 10 - 8) = 6

   rsPiEval:  (119 - 85 + 10) / (8 + 6) ~= Pi
   * 44/14 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)
   * 3.1415926535897932384626

   rsHwyEval:  (119 - 85 - 10) / (6 / cuberoot(8)) = 8
   * This road sign is on I-8.

   rsHwyEval:  (8 - 6) * ((119 - 85) % 10) = 8
   * This road sign is on I-8.

   rs42Eval:  119 - 85 + 10 - 8 + 6 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rs42Eval:  119 - 85 + avg(6, 8, 10) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsStateEval:  (119 - 85 + 8 + 6) * log(10) = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   BARSfunc rsAgeEval:  sqrt(119 + 85 - 8) + summation(6, 10) = 54
   * RoadHacker was 54 years young when he found this road sign.
   * summation(6, 10) = 6+7+8+9+10 = 40

   BARSfunc off-by-one rsAgeEval:  119 - 85 - 6 + summation(8, 10) = 54+1
   * RoadHacker was 54 years young when he found this road sign.
   * MathBabbler was one week shy of 55 when he found this equation.
   * summation(8, 10) = 8+9+10 = 27
