                                                                                                                                                      ֵ ans: 40

The sum , 59 can be split into 2 parts differing by a multiple of 11 .in one way: 24+35.
Clearly  35 cannot result from summing up the digits on  3 even places within the 7-digit number, it most occupy four.

There is only one partition of 35 into dec. digits ; (8,9,9,9), -S)Making 4 compositions

There are 3 partitions of 24 into dec. digits; 699 (3 compositions), (789 (6 compositions), 888 -1 way onlyl

So the total is  4*(3+6+1)=40. 

Smallest number….8699999   .


Rem:  a software program to verify and to print the results (sum=59)

should test ONLY numbers running from the 1st to the 2nd  , step=11.
