The 196-algorithm: Take any number. Reverse its digits, then add both numbers together. If the result is not a palindrome (reads backwards and forwards), repeat the process.

197: The number of times I tried the above algorithm and failed to produce a palindrome.

Eeeps! Might have something to do with how Wikipedia entries simplify/translate things. The actual 196 algorithm is as so:

Take any positive integer of two digits or more, reverse the digits, and add to the original number. This is the operation of the reverse-then-add sequence. Now repeat the procedure with the sum so obtained until a palindromic number is obtained.


Aaaanywhooo ...

Interesting little factoid: Microsoft's Chicago datacenter has a total capacity of 198 megawatts of power.

Ya. Tried that with 196. Got to 60,744,805 before I gave up.

Result of running the algorithm as specified on 202:
404
(you really should be checking to see if you're starting with a palindrome )


Edit: A quit ruby script verifies that this algorithm does not work for 196
Code:
str=''
print 'enter your number: '
str=gets
while str != str.reverse
        puts str
        str=(str.to_i+str.reverse.to_i).to_s
end
puts str
This loops until I get impatient and kill it.

Edit 2: Oh hey, if you read up on it, it's named the 196 algorithm because it fails to produce a result for 196.

Lol.. good call.
