A palindromic number reads the same both ways. The largest palindrome made from the product of two 2-digit numbers is 9009 = 91 × 99.
Find the largest palindrome made from the product of two 3-digit numbers.
999*991=990009

If you have, and if you are absolutely certain that your method is faster than that, you can PM me your method.
We will then consider re-opening the thread.
