   the numbers are:  6  53  2  30  5  0  2

   the math is:  sqrt(53 + 30 - 2) = 6 + 5 - 2 + 0

   rsPhiEval:  (0! + sqrt(5)) / (sqrt(53 - 2 - 2) - 30 / 6) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rsPiEval:  (53 - 30 - 0!) / (5 + 6 - 2 - 2) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

   rsPiEval:  (5! / 2 + 6) / (53 - 30 - 2 - 0) = Pi
   * 66/21 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

   rsPiEval:  (53 + 30 + 5) / (2 * 2 * (6 + 0!)) = Pi
   * 88/28approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

   rsAgeEval:  (53 - 30) * 2 + 5 + (6 + 2)^0 = 52
   * RoadHacker was 52 years young when he found these signs.

   rs42Eval:  (53 - 30) * 2 - 5 + (6 + 2)^0 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   more math:  53^0 + 30 / 6 = (5 - 2) * 2

   more math:  sqrt(53 - 2 - 2) - sqrt(6 * (30 / 5)) = 0!

   more math:  sqrt(53 - 2 - 2) - 6! / sqrt(30 - 5)! = 0!

   more math:  log(53 + 30 + 5 * 2 + 6 + 0!) = 2

   more math:  sqrt(53 * 2 - 6) = 30^0 * 2 * 5

   more math:  log(30 / log((53 * 2 - 6) * 2 * 5)) = 0!
