   the numbers are:  8  7  30  5  30

   the math is:  7 - cuberoot(8) = sqrt(30 - sqrt(30 - 5))

   rsPhiEval:  (30 / 30 + sqrt(5)) / cuberoot(8! / 7!) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   rsPiEval:  (30 - 8) / (7! / (30 / 5)!) = Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi (3.14) rounded to nearest hundredth

   rs42Eval:  (5! / 30) + 30 + 8! / 7! = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rsAgeEval:  8 * 7 - 5 + 30 / 30 = 52
   * RoadHacker was 52 years young when he found this sign

   rsStateEval:  30 - 5! / 30 + cuberoot(8! / 7!) = 28
   * Texas was the 28th state admitted to the Union
