 Sum Month and Day II (Posted on 2011-09-20)
A "sum digit-day" is a date in which the sum of the digits of the month and the day add up to the sum of the digits of the year in the mm-dd-yy format.

For example,12-18-84 is a sum digit-day as the respective sum of the digits of the month and the day add up to 12 which is equal to the sum of the digits of the year.

(i) Determine the total number of sum digit-days from January 1, 2002 to December 31, 2099 inclusively.

(ii) Determine the year(s) having the maximum number of sum digit- days in the period covered under (i).

(iii) Determine the last sum digit-day in the period covered under (i).

I had done this with a computer program, but there's no point in showing that.  However it might be interesting to see the breakdown by s.o.d.  Each possible sod, from 2 to 18 is listed below, followed by the dates that satisfy that sod, and further followed by the years with the given sod.  Each list of dates and each list of years is followed by the count of the number of dates or number of years.

For example, the list shows four dates within a year where the sod is 2, and three years in which the sod is 2 for the last two digits.
