    The digit combinations of a 5-digit number having a sum of 43 is quite limited.
    The digits are 99997, 99988.
    99997 can place the 7 in 5 positions, so the number of outcomes using 4-9's and a 7 is 5.
    Using 3-9's and 2-8's has 5!/(3!2!)=10 ways of arranging the numbers.
    Of these, only 98989, 97999 and 99979 are divisible by 11.
    Can you continue?
    Check my thinking.
