Hello Eric & SeqFans,

I think there are at least 4 possible definitions :

1. n=concat(a,b), a,b>0, and (a+b) | n
(here it is understood that none of a,b,n has leading zeros)
This is a subsequence of all the following:

2. n=concat(a,b), a>0, and (a+b) | n
(here a must be nonzero and b cannot have leading zeros but may be zero)
e.g. all n = concat(k,0) = 10k = 0 (mod k+0) are included
but 102 is not included.

3. (n%p + n\p) | n  where 1 < p=10^k <= n and b>0
("b may have leading zeros" but must be nonzero)
(% = mod ; \ = div)
e.g. 102 = 0 (mod 1+02) is, but not all multiples of 10 are included
(10,20,..100 are excluded, 110 is allowed because =0 (mod 1+10))

4. (n%p + n\p) | n  where 1 < p=10^k <= n
("b" may have leading zeros and even be zero)
(% = mod ; \ = div)
This includes all of the preceding.

is4(n)=n&&for(k=1,#Str(n)-1,n%([1,1]*divrem(n,10^k)||return(1))
is3(n)=n&&for(k=1,#Str(n)-1,n%([1,1]*divrem(n,10^k))==0&&(n%10^k)&&return(1))
is2(n)=n&&for(k=1,#Str(n)-1,n%([1,1]*divrem(n,10^k))==0&&(k==1||n%10^k>=10^(k-1))&&return(1))
is1(n)=n&&for(k=1,#Str(n)-1,n%([1,1]*divrem(n,10^k))==0&&(n%10^k>=10^(k-1))&&return(1))
