Solution

#### Note:

This exercise has changed since this solution was written.

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.

## Running the tests

To run the tests, run the command `dotnet test` from within the exercise directory.

Initially, only the first test will be enabled. This is to encourage you to solve the exercise one step at a time. Once you get the first test passing, remove the `Skip` property from the next test and work on getting that test passing. Once none of the tests are skipped and they are all passing, you can submit your solution using `exercism submit ArmstrongNumbers.cs`
