COMMENTS

These numbers are haiku when written in English (including the 'and' between the hundreds and tens or units). A haiku is a three-line poem with 5 syllables in the first line, seven in the second and five in the third.

Apparently the actual criterion is that there are 17 syllables, as words can be broken across lines: e.g.,

    One hundred and sev-

    en thousand one hundred and

    seventy-seven. - Robert Israel, Nov 11 2018

EXAMPLE

77777 is a haiku:

Seventy-seven

thousand, seven hundred and

seventy-seven.

MAPLE

filter:= proc(n) uses StringTools; local t;

t:= convert(n, english, 'And');

t:= subs("ninety"="eighty", Split(t, "- "));

# Maple thinks "ninety" has 3 syllables

convert(map(SyllableLength, t), `+`)=17

end proc:

select(filter, [$1..110000]); # Robert Israel, Nov 11 2018
