Algebraic Solution
 Comment 2 of 5 
Let N = 10a + b
Let N/2 = 10c + d
Then 10a + b = 20c + 2d
c cannot be the sum of the digits, so d = a + b
Then 8a  b = 20c
If c = a  b, then this becomes 19 b = 12a, and the only solution in single digits is (0,0).
So c = b  a.
Then 28a = 21b
4a = 3b
Solution = (3,4)
N = 34 and N/2 = 17
. Only solution
