# 196-Algorithm: Palindromic Numbers

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

This Demonstration is an exploration and display of the 196-algorithm, which consists of taking a number, reversing its digit order, and then adding the result to the original value. The result tends to get one closer to a palindromic number (a palindromic number reads the same from left to right as from right to left, e.g. 1122211). The number 196 does not generate a palindromic number for at least 2,400,000 iterations.
