2 digit Palindrome describes a process by which most multi-digit numbers eventually become palindromes. The process being to repeatedly add a given number to the number formed when its digits are reversed.
For example: 152 -> 152+251=403 -> 403+304=707
I applied that process to a certain three digit number four times before I got a palindrome.
After the first and second additions, it was still a three digit number, and neither was a palindrome.
After the third addition it became a four digit number, but still not a palindrome.
And after the fourth addition the result was a four digit palindrome.
What number did I start with, assuming the first digit was smaller than the last?
