Determine all possible positive decimal integer(s) P = X1X2X3….Xn, where P>=2 with none of the digits in P being zero, that satisfy this equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

P = X1^X1 + X2^X2 + ……+ Xn^Xn

(For example, P = 234 cannot be a solution since 2^2 + 3^3 + 4^4 is equal to 287, not 234.)

Notes:

(i) X1X2X3….Xn denotes the concatenation of the digits X1, X2, …, Xn and do not represent the product of the digits.

(ii) P cannot admit any leading zero.
