A006753 Smith (or joke) numbers: composite numbers n such that sum of digits of n = sum of digits of prime factors of n (counted with multiplicity).

%N Smith (or joke) numbers: composite numbers n such that sum of digits of n = sum of digits of prime factors of n (counted with multiplicity).

%C Of course primes also have this property, trivially.

%C a(133809) = 4937775 is the first Smith number historically: 4937775 = 3*5*5*65837 and 4+9+3+7+7+7+5 = 3+5+5+(6+5+8+3+7) = 42, Albert Wilansky coined the term Smith number when he noticed the defining property in the phone number of his brother-in-law Harold Smith: 493-7775.

%C There are 248483 7-digit Smith numbers, corresponding to US phone numbers without area codes (like 4937775). - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, May 19 2013

%C A007953(a(n)) = Sum_{k=1..A001222(a(n))} A007953(A027746(a(n),k)), and A066247(a(n))=1. - _Reinhard Zumkeller_, Dec 19 2011

%C 3^3, 3^6, 3^9, 3^27 are in the sequence. - _Sergey Pavlov_, Apr 01 2017

%C As mentioned by _Giovanni Resta_, there are no other terms of the form 3^t for 0 < t < 300000 and, probably, no other terms of such form for t >= 300000. It seems that, if there exists any other term of form 3^t with integer t, then t == 0 (mod 3) or, perhaps, t = {3^k; 2*3^k} where k is integer, k > 10. - _Sergey Pavlov_, Apr 03 2017
