Given a number n as a string, find the nth even-length positive palindrome number .
Input : n = "1" Output : 11 1st even-length palindrome is 11 . Input : n = "10" Output : 1001 The first 10 even-length palindrome numbers are 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, 99 and 1001.
As, it is a even-length palindrome so its first half should be equal to reverse of second half and length will be 2, 4, 6, 8 …. To evaluate nth palindrome let’s just see 1st 10 even-length palindrome numbers 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, 99 and 1001 . Here, nth palindrome is nn’ where n’ is reverse of n . Thus we just have to write n and n’ in a consecutive manner where n’ is reverse of n .
Below is the implementation of this approach.
