This weeks question is about deconstructing numbers to find digits that match a certain pattern.

Write a method that would find all positive integers that do not have 0 in their digits, and have a digital sum equal to 5. An example of this would be 14  (1+4 =5). 

Output what each of the numbers are and, as usual, aim for efficiency in your answer
