Idea is to get the `i'th`

digit from the beginning and `i'th`

digit from the end. For beginning you cannot remove the digits prior to that because if the next digit is 0 and if you remove the digit 0's will be removed too. eg.

`x = 100021`

if you remove first one and last 1 then the number

`x = 2 (0's will not count)`

```
public boolean isPalindrome(int x) {
if(x<0) return false;
int digits=0, temp=x;
while(temp>0){
digits++;
temp/=10;
}
while(digits>1){
int a = (x/(int) Math.pow(10,digits-1))%10;
int b = x%10;
if(a!=b) return false;
x = x / 10;
digits -= 2;
}
return true;
}
```
