Mirror, mirror (Posted on 2012-05-04) Difficulty: 3 of 5
What palindromic prime number of n digits reads the same upside down or when viewed in a mirror?

Some examples for n=2 or 3:
11, 101, 181.

How far can you go?

Rem: Only digits 0,l and 8 qualify.

With the exception of 11, all such primes will have odd n because palindromes with an even number of digits are divisible by 11.

Here is a list of the first 22 such numbers

This site gives a very large number (n=180055)
