Agreed. In fact when I saw the problem and saw that it was "Easy" I was thinking there must be an easy way. Eventually I gave up because I could only think to do the "assumed max palindrome" solution (which ain't easy!).
@tankztc I think so！
This question just doesn't sound like an easy one to me... ╮(╯﹏╰)╭
LOL, neither do I.
@memo40k lol Same
Thank you for starting this thread! I immediately felt the same way when I saw the Easy label! Self esteem restored!
Palindrome happens so much in Leetcode. like a hundred of them.
Seems that if n is an even number, you can guess out the largest palindromic number.
101*99=99,99; take out the middle 99, which is 990/99=10, then it is (101-10)*99=91*99=9009
10001*9999=9999,9999, take out the middle 9999, which is 999900/9999=100, then it is (10001-100)*9999=9901*9999=99000099
and so on.
This is hard even compared to most LeetCode "Hard"s. One of the hardest questions on the site imo.
