The Conscientious Driver

Question

Posted · Report post

Mr. D always followed the advice to conserve energy as he was a conscientious driver. While driving his family Ford one day, he came to a stop sign and noticed that the odometer showed 25952 miles. Observant as he was he recognised that the number was a palindrome. He thought that it will be a long time before a palindromic number happens again. Yet two hours later when he arrived home the odometer showed a new palindrome number.

What was the new palindrome number, and how fast was he travelling in those two hours?

The next palindrome is 26062, which is 110 miles later. Over two hours of driving, this was 55 mph.
