'196' is such a number that has a specialty from the aspect of algorithm.Almost every big scientist and mathematical expert has tried to solve the algorithm problem with the number '196' but they all failed unfortunately!In order to make it clear we have to remember the term "PALINDROMIC" from mathematics.Any palindromic number is such a number that remains the same when the digits are reversed. As for example 16461. Way To Get Palindromic Number Based on Algorithm: 1. Take a full number 2. Reverse it and add to the original number 3. Now if it is not palindromic then repeat the 2nd step again 4. In this way the number will be palindromic Is any number can transform to palindromic? Actually from number 1 to 10,000 80% number can be transformed to palindromic by algorithm through 3 to 4 steps.About 90% number will transform to palindromic through 7 or less steps by algorithm.The number '89' is a bit different.In order to transform '89' 24 steps need to be completed. 196 Algorithm/Problem: Pre years of computing of John Walker tried more than three years to transform the number '196' through 24,15 and 836 steps but failed.Even at the 13 million step of algorithm is has not possible to transform '196' to palindromic!!! There are also"Palindromic Word" in computing.Like DAD,POP,NOON etc.. I have shared this info for getting the opinions of BHW friends.If anybody has any updated info feel free to say it in comment section. Thanks!
