How many five-digit numbers are there in which the sum of the digits equals the sum of the square of the digits?

16.

Why did the vector cross the road?

It wanted to be normal.

Yes, 16 if the number starts with a 1, and can't start with a zero.

Since the square of all digits from 0 to 9 get larger or stay the same, then

you don't get any up/down canceling in the sum, so then you have to

settle on just using zeros and ones.
