A Vampire number z is a number which can be written as a product of two numbers x and y containing the same digits the same number of times as the vampire number. Here x and y are called FANGS.

FOR EXAMPLE:

1827 can be written as a product of two numbers 21 and 87.

i.e., 1827 = 21 * 87

Here the digits 1,8, 2,7 are repeated the same number of times but in different order. 21 and 87 are called fangs.

**A true Vampire number isa number which can be written with 2 fangs having the same number of digits not both ending in zero.**

FOR EXAMPLE :

1260 is a vampire number, with 21 and 60 as fangs, since 21 × 60 = 1260. However, 126000 – 210 × 600 – is not, as both 210 and 600 have trailing zeroes.

**All vampire numbers must clearly have an no. of digits.**

Some vampire numbers:

117067 = 167*701

124483 = 281 * 443

536539 = 563 · 953

23287176 = 2673 * 8712.

**Vampire number having two distinct pairs of fangs :**

125460 = 204 *615 = 246 * 510

**Vampire number having three distinct pairs of fangs :**

13078260 = 1620*8073 = 1863*7020 = 2070*6318

puzzles and 'vampire numbers' are very interesting.
