Determine the number of palindromes with 7 digits.

There are two methods to do this problem.

 

Method 1: Pattern Finding

 

There are 9 palindromes with 2 digits 

There are 90 palindromes with 3 digits

There are 90 palindromes with 4 digits

There are 900 palindromes with 5 digits

 

 

So 1 digit: 9

2 digits: 9

3 digits: 90

4 digits: 90

5 digits: 900

6 digits: 900

7 digits: 9000

 

9000

 

Method 2: Counting

 

The 7 digit palindrome is in this format:

 

ABCDCBA

 

There are 9 choices for A

10 for B

10 for C

10 for D

 

\(9\cdot{10}\cdot{10}\cdot{10}=\boxed{9000}\)

 

I hope this helped,
