Definition: Strictly non-palindromic number or SNP number n is a number not palindromic in any base b with 2 ≤ b ≤ n-2.

Equipped only with the above definition you are asked to perform the following tasks:
1. Show that 47 is a SNP number.
2. Write down the 1st 7 members of an increasing sequence of SNP numbers.
3. Explain the reason for defining b=n-2 as the upper limit.
4. Prove that all SNP numbers above 6 are prime, but not all primes are SNP numbers.

Arrange 4 fours into various expressions to generate all integer numbers, from 1 to 112 inclusive like:

1 = 44 ÷ 44
2=sqrt 4 - (4 - 4) x 4
3 = (4 + 4 + 4) ÷ 4
4 = 4 + 4 × (4 - 4)
... ...
7= 44/4-4
... ...
... ...

Allow use of concatenation, +, -, x, /, sqrt, exponentation, factorial,decimal fractions, overline & brackets.

From a set of 2n+1 consecutive integers a certain number, say x, is selected in a way that the remaining n pairs can be arranged as couples having the same sum.

What are all the possible values of x making such task doable?
