Find the total number of four-digit palindromes. (Recall that a palindrome is a non-negative sequence of digits which reads the same forwards and backwards, such as 1331. Zero cannot be the first digit.)

Find the total number of four-digit palindromes.

(Recall that a palindrome is a non-negative sequence of digits which reads the same forwards and backwards, such as 1331. Zero cannot be the first digit.)

 

There are 90 four-digit palindromes.

Here's another way

 

We have 9 ways to select the first digit  and 10  ways to select the second digit

 

So.....the number of 4 digit palindromes is  just

 

9 * 10   =

 

90
