1 Palindrome 1 (Posted on 2006-06-10) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Take a standard 8x8 chessboard, number the black squares 1 and the white squares 0. How many palindromes does this board contain in 'word-search' fashion?

Now generalize and find a formula for any n*n board.

Notes: A palindrome and its reversal should not be counted twice. A palindrome must be at least two digits long and leading zeroes are not allowed. Numbers can be read in any single vertical, horizontal or diagonal direction.
