My Java solution.

``````private boolean isEqual(String s) {
if (s.length() < 3) {
return false;
}
// create start sum and end sum value
int start = 0;
int end = 0;

// sum the first three number and last three number
for (int i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
if (Character.isDigit(s.charAt(i))) {
start += s.charAt(i);
} else {
return false; // char at i is not number
}

if (Character.isDigit(s.charAt(s.length() - 1 - i))) {
end += s.charAt(s.length() - 1 - i);
} else {
return false; // char at s.length() - 1 - i is not number;
}
}

return start == end;
}``````
