**Hi! :) Need a little help with my math..**
Hi, I know I'm like really new here and stuff, but I was hoping to get a bit of help with my math. The question reads, "What is the difference when the smallest 2-digit palindrome is subtracted from the largest 2-digit palindrome?" I know most of you will find this one to be pretty easy, but seriously...I have no idea what a palindrome is...:( Thanks to anyone who can help me out on this one!!! :)
your new pal,

A palindrome is something that can be written in reverse order and still be the same. For instance, 14641 is a palindrome because it is still 14641 if you write it backwards. However, 3543 is not a palindrome because it becomes 3453 when you write it backwards.
Palindromes: 55, 242, 9009, 44544, 536635.
Not Palindromes: 28, 334, 8798, 90989, 645342.
Words can also be palindromes: noon, did, racecar.
If you ignore spaces and punctuation, phrases and sentences can also be palindromes:
Madam, I'm Adam. A man, a plan, a canal, Panama. Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog. |

So, knowing that 55 is an example of a palindrome, the smallest and largest two-digit palindromes should be pretty easy to figure out. |
