Sort the array so that they are sorted as if their value was a 5 digit number made from the first three and last two digits of the value, irrespective of the middle digits.

For example: the array is: [166552, 12389245, 88234, 74123245], it the return would be sorted as if the numbers were [16652, 12345, 88234, 74145], and therefore the return array would be: [12389245, 166552, 74123245, 88234].

The numbers are all integers >= 10000, with no leading 0's.

I did have another solution using mod, but I hadn't thought of num2str. Good job.
