The digits have to add up to a multiple of 3

The biggest one will be 9999 

Lets see

 

There are loads of patterns happening here - can you find them all ??      laugh

 

 

1221             2

1551             5

1881             8

 

2112             1

2442             4

2772             7

 

3003             0

3333             3

3663             6

3993             9

 

4224             2

4554

4884

 

5115             1

5445

5775

 

6006              0

6336             

6666

6996 

 

7227             2

7557

7887 

 

8118              1

8448

8778

 

9009              0

9339

9669

9999

 

 

6*3 + 3*4 = 18+12 = 30

There are 30 four digit  palindromes  

Proper numbers only, I didn't include any begining with 0 but if i had there would be 4 or those.
