   the numbers are:  10  2  8  10  11  10

   the math is:  (10 * 10 + 2 + 8) / 11 = 10
   more math:  2^sqrt(10 + 10 - 11) = 8
   more math:  mode(10, 2, 8, 10, 11) = 10
   more math:  median(2, 8, 10, 10, 11) = 10

   rsPhiEval: (log(10) + sqrt(11 - 8 + 2)) / (log(10) + log(10)) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rsPiEval:  (10 + 10 + 2) / (8 + 10 - 11) ~= Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)
     3.1415926535897932384626

   rsCardinalityEval:  ((11! / 10!) - 10) * (8 - 2) = 6
   * There are six numbers on this parking meter.

   rs42Eval:  10 + 2 + 8 + 10 + 11 + log(10) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
