How many reversible numbers are there below one-billion?
Problem 145Published on Friday, 16th March 2007, 01:00 pm; Solved by 10075; Difficulty rating: 20%
Some positive integers n have the property that the sum [ n + reverse(n) ] consists entirely of odd (decimal) digits. For instance, 36 + 63 = 99 and 409 + 904 = 1313. We will call such numbers reversible; so 36, 63, 409, and 904 are reversible. Leading zeroes are not allowed in either n or reverse(n).
There are 120 reversible numbers below one-thousand.
How many reversible numbers are there below one-billion (109)?
