An account number is composed of a quad (4 digits) followed by three triplets (3 digits each).
To validate the account number:
- For each of the first three components, calculate the sum of the digits.
- Extract the right-most digit of each sum.
- Total the right-most digits.
- Extract the right-most digit of the total.
- Check whether the right-most digit of the total equals the last digit of the account number.
