Vampire Numbers Have Fangs For Factors
Vampire numbers can have more than one pair of fangs! For example, 13,078,260 has three pairs: 1620 x 8073, 1863 x 7020, and 2070 x 6318. There are only seven four-digit vampire numbers, but there are more than 200 million vampire numbers that are 14 digits long or more. Pseudovampire numbers abide by the same rules, except that the fangs don't need to contain an equal number of digits. For example, 126 = 6 x 21.
