Def: A frugal number is a natural number that has more digits than the number of digits in its prime factorization (including exponents). For example, 128=2^7 and 29282=2*11^4

C l a r i f i c a t I o n

A number  N  is called frugal if the number of digits in its prime factorization (including exponents greater than 1) is smaller than the number of digits of N.

A number  N  is called equidital  if the number of digits in its prime factorization (including exponents greater than 1) is equal to the number of digits of   N.

For example,  2048=2^11  is frugal.

The union of frugal and equidigital numbers gives economical  numbers.

Some authors call the frugal numbers economical.

Every number greater than 1923 can be written as a sum of frugal numbers.
