I guess your issue is how to represent the card numbers of arbitrary
length, or? Wouldn't a list work?

I have the following, and it works, but I am trying teach myself Haskell,
and I have the suspicion that my solutions is both inefficient and
graceless. Any feedback would be appreciated.

{-
8.The Luhn algorithm is used to check bank card numbers for simple errors
such as mistyping a digit, and proceeds as follows:
* consider each digit as a separate number;
* moving left, double every other number from the second last;
* subtract 9 from each number that is now greater than 9;
* add all the resulting numbers together;
* if the total is divisible by 10, the card number is valid.
Define a function luhnDouble :: Int -> Int that doubles a digit
and subtracts 9 if the result is greater than 9.
For example:
> luhnDouble 3
6
> luhnDouble 6
3
Using luhnDouble and the integer remainder function mod, define a function
luhn :: Int -> Int -> Int -> Int -> Bool
that decides if a four-digit bank card number is valid.
For example:
> luhn 1 7 8 4
True
> luhn 4 7 8 3
False
In the exercises for chapter 7 we will consider a more general version of
this function that accepts card numbers of any length.

luhn :: Int -> Int -> Int -> Int -> Bool
luhn x1 x2 x3 x4 = if 0 == sum[luhnDouble x1, x2, luhnDouble x3, x4] `mod`
