   the numbers are:  13  24  7

   rs42Eval:  cuberoot(1324)! * 7 = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rs37Eval:  2413 + 7 = 37
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   ...BARS functions...
   * reverse_digits(n) = the digits of n reversed
     domain:  n must be a prime number
   * sum_digits(n) = sum the digits of n
     domain:  n must be a prime number
   * mult_digits(n) = product of the digits of n
     domain:  n must be a prime number
   * spf(n) = the sum of the prime factors of n
     domain: n must be a composite number

   * 13 is prime
     reverse_digits(13) = 31  (note 31 is prime)
     sum_digits(13) = 1+3 = 4
     mult_digits(13) = 1*3 = 3
   * 24 is composite
     spf(24) = 2+2+2+3 = 9

   BARSfunc math:  13 -  7 = sqrt(spf(24))!
   BARSfunc math:  24 % 7 = mult_digits(13)
   BARSfunc math:  reverse_digits(13) - 7 = 24
   BARSfunc math:  13 - 7 = spf(spf(24))
   * spf(24) = 9; spf(9) = 3+3 = 6

   BARSfunc rsStateEval:  sqrt(17 - mult_digits(13)) * 24 = 48
   * Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the Union.

   BARSfunc rs42Eval:  mult_digits(13 * 7 - 24) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"
   * 67 is prime; mult_digits(67) = 6*7 = 42

   BARSfunc rs37Eval:  7 + 24 + mult_digits(13)! = 37
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   BARSfunc rsPiEval:  (13 + spf(24)) / 7 = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)
   * Pi ~= 3.1415926535897932384626

   BARSfunc rsCardinalityEval:  spf(24) + 7 - 13 = 3
