Solution

An Armstrong number is a number that is the sum of its own digits each raised to the power of the number of digits.

For example:

- 9 is an Armstrong number, because
`9 = 9^1 = 9`

- 10 is
*not*an Armstrong number, because`10 != 1^2 + 0^2 = 1`

- 153 is an Armstrong number, because:
`153 = 1^3 + 5^3 + 3^3 = 1 + 125 + 27 = 153`

- 154 is
*not*an Armstrong number, because:`154 != 1^3 + 5^3 + 4^3 = 1 + 125 + 64 = 190`

Write some code to determine whether a number is an Armstrong number.
