# Print all palindrome dates between the given years

• Difficulty Level : Basic
• Last Updated : 16 Dec, 2019

Given two years Y1 and Y2 where 103 ≤ Y1 ≤ Y2 ≤ 106, the task is to find and print all the dates which are palindromes between the given years.

Input: Y1 = 2001, Y2 = 2005
Output:
10022001
20022002

Input: Y1 = 5000, Y2 = 5010
Output:
10055001
20055002
30055003
01055010

Approach: Since the first four digits (i.e. the day and the month) have to be the reverse of the last four digits (the year) in order for the date to be a palindrome. So, every year will have at most one palindrome date. In order to find the dates, for every year reverse the year number and check whether the date formed is valid or not. If it is valid then print it.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++
