# Find palindromic numbers in both binary and ternary bases

Find palindromic numbers in both binary and ternary bases
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.
•   Find and show (in decimal) the first six numbers (non-negative integers) that are   palindromes   in   both:
•   base 2
•   base 3
•   Display   0   (zero) as the first number found, even though some other definitions ignore it.
•   Optionally, show the decimal number found in its binary and ternary form.
•   Show all output here.

It's permissible to assume the first two numbers and simply list them.

•   Sequence A60792,   numbers that are palindromic in bases 2 and 3 on The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences.

### Simple Technique (Brute Force)

procedure Brute is

```  type Long is range 0 .. 2**63-1;
package BC is new Base_Conversion(Long);
```
```  function Palindrome (S : String) return Boolean is
(if S'Length < 2 then True
elsif S(S'First) /= S(S'Last) then False
else Palindrome(S(S'First+1 .. S'Last-1)));
```
```  function Palindrome(N: Long; Base: Natural) return Boolean is
(Palindrome(BC.Image(N, Base =>Base)));
```
``` package IIO is new Ada.Text_IO.Integer_IO(Long);
```

begin

```  for I in Long(1) .. 10**8 loop
if Palindrome(I, 3) and then Palindrome(I, 2) then
```

IIO.Put(I, Width => 12); -- prints I (Base 10) Ada.Text_IO.Put_Line(": " & BC.Image(I, Base => 2) & "(2)" & ", " & BC.Image(I, Base => 3) & "(3)"); -- prints I (Base 2 and Base 3)

```     end if;
end loop;
```

end Brute;</lang>

Output:
```           0: 0(2), 0(3)
1: 1(2), 1(3)
6643: 1100111110011(2), 100010001(3)
1422773: 101011011010110110101(2), 2200021200022(3)
5415589: 10100101010001010100101(2), 101012010210101(3)```

For larger numbers, this is a bit slow.

To speed this up, we directly generate palindromes to the base 3 and then check if these are also palindromes to the base 2. We use the fact that these palindromes (to the base 3) must have an odd number of digits (to the base 2 and 3) and that the number in the middle is a 1 (to the base 3). We use unsigned 64 bits integers that we consider as array of 64 bits thanks to a function Int_To_Bits (an instantiation of a generic conversion function) that goes from one type to the other immediately. We can now access the i'th bit of an Int in a very efficient way (since it is chosen by the compiler itself). This trick gives us a very efficient function to test if a number is a base-2 palindrome.

The code is then very fast and also very much readable than if we had done the bit manipulations by hand.

``` type Int is mod 2**64; -- the size of the unsigned values we will test doesn't exceed 64 bits
```
``` type Bits is array (0..63) of Boolean;
for Bits'Component_Size use 1;
```
``` -- This function allows us to get the i'th bit of an Int k by writing Int_To_Bits(k)(i)
```
``` -- an inline function to test if k is palindromic in a very efficient way since we leave the loop
-- as soon as two bits are not symmetric). Number_Of_Digits is the number of digits (in base 2) of k minus 1
function Is_Pal2 (k : Int;Number_Of_Digits : Natural) return Boolean is
(for all i in 0..Number_Of_Digits=>Int_To_Bits(k)(i)=Int_To_Bits(k)(Number_Of_Digits-i));
```
``` function Reverse_Number (k : Int) return Int is --returns the symmetric representation of k (base-3)
n : Int := 0;
p : Int := k;
begin
```

while 0

2, Width=>65); Put (n, Base=>3, Width=>45); put_line (" " & n'Img); end Print; p3, n, bound, count_pal: Int := 1; begin Print (0); -- because 0 is the special case asked to be treated, that is why count_pal=1 Process_Each_Power_Of_4 : for p in 0..31 loop -- because 4^p < 2^64 -- adjust the 3-power of the number to test so that the palindrome built with it has an odd number of digits in base-2 while (3*p3+1)*p3 < 2**(2*p) loop p3 := 3*p3;end loop; bound := 2**(2*p)/(3*p3); for k in Int range Int'Max(p3/3, bound) .. Int'Min (2*bound,p3-1) loop n := (3*k+1)*p3 + Reverse_Number (k); -- n is a 2p+1 digits number in base 2 and is a palindrome in base 3. if Is_Pal2 (n, 2*p) then Print (n); count_pal := count_pal + 1; exit Process_Each_Power_Of_4 when count_pal = 7; end if; end loop; end loop Process_Each_Power_Of_4; end Palindromic;</lang>

Output:

On a modern machine, (core i5 for example), this code, compiled with the -O3 and -gnatp options, takes less than 5 seconds to give the seven first palindromes smaller than 2^64.

## C

Per the observations made by the Ruby code (which are correct), the numbers must have odd number of digits in base 3 with a 1 at the middle, and must have odd number of digits in base 2. <lang c>#include <stdio.h> typedef unsigned long long xint;

int is_palin2(xint n) { xint x = 0; if (!(n&1)) return !n; while (x < n) x = x<<1 | (n&1), n >>= 1; return n == x || n == x>>1; }

xint reverse3(xint n) { xint x = 0; while (n) x = x*3 + (n%3), n /= 3; return x; }

void print(xint n, xint base) { putchar(' '); // printing digits backwards, but hey, it's a palindrome do { putchar('0' + (n%base)), n /= base; } while(n); printf("(%lld)", base); }

void show(xint n) { printf("%llu", n); print(n, 2); print(n, 3); putchar('\n'); }

xint min(xint a, xint b) { return a < b ? a : b; } xint max(xint a, xint b) { return a > b ? a : b; }

int main(void) { xint lo, hi, lo2, hi2, lo3, hi3, pow2, pow3, i, n; int cnt;

show(0); cnt = 1;

lo = 0; hi = pow2 = pow3 = 1;

while (1) { for (i = lo; i < hi; i++) { n = (i * 3 + 1) * pow3 + reverse3(i); if (!is_palin2(n)) continue; show(n); if (++cnt >= 7) return 0; }

## C#

Works with: C sharp version 3

No strings involved. Ternary numbers (only of odd length and with a 1 in the middle) are generated by permutating powers of 3
and then checked to see if they are palindromic in binary.
The first 6 numbers take about 1/10th of a second. The 7th number takes about 3 and a half minutes. <lang csharp>using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq;

public class FindPalindromicNumbers {

```   static void Main(string[] args)

foreach (var x in query) {
Console.WriteLine("Decimal: " + x);
Console.WriteLine("Ternary: " + ToTernary(x));
Console.WriteLine("Binary: " + Convert.ToString(x, 2));
Console.WriteLine();

## FreeBASIC

As using a brute force approach will be too slow for this task we instead create ternary palindromes and check if they are also binary palindromes using the optimizations which have been noted in some of the other language solutions : <lang freebasic>' FB 1.05.0 Win64

'converts decimal "n" to its ternary equivalent Function Ter(n As UInteger) As String

' check if a binary or ternary numeric string "s" is palindromic Function isPalindromic(s As String) As Boolean

``` ' we can assume "s" will have an odd number of digits, so can ignore the middle digit
Dim As UInteger length = Len(s)
For i As UInteger = 0 To length \ 2 - 1
If s[i] <> s[length - 1 - i] Then Return False
Next
Return True

End Sub

' create a ternary palindrome whose left part is the ternary equivalent of "n" and return its decimal equivalent Function createPalindrome3(n As UInteger) As UInteger

``` Dim As String ternary = Ter(n)
Dim As UInteger power3 = 1, sum = 0, length = Len(ternary)
For i As Integer = 0 To Length - 1 right part of palindrome is mirror image of left part
If ternary[i] > 48 Then   i.e. non-zero

End If
power3 *= 3
Next

## Phix

Alternative approach. Works by finding the next palindrome, in either base, in an attempt to skip fairly large chunks of the search space. Prints the first 6 palindromes (the limit on 32 bit) in about a second, but the 7th (on 64 bit only) takes just over half an hour.

Theoretically it could be made a fair bit faster by replacing the string handling (which I hope you will find very easy to follow) with maths/bit-fiddling, however my attempts at that turned out noticeably slower.

```with javascript_semantics

constant {dsize,w3,w2,limit} = iff(machine_bits()=32?{12,23,37,6}

-- [atoms on 32-bit have only 53 bits of precision, but 7th ^^^^ requires 59]

### much simpler version

(slightly but not alot faster)

```with javascript_semantics
function to_base(atom n, integer base)
string result = ""
while true do
result &= remainder(n,base)
n = floor(n/base)
if n=0 then exit end if
end while
return result
end function

procedure show(integer count, atom n)
p2 = repeat(' ',(37-length(n2))/2),
p3 = repeat(' ',(23-length(n3))/2)
printf(1,"%2d: %12d %s%s%s %s%s\n",{count, n, p3,n3,p3, p2,n2})
end procedure

function createpalindrome3(integer n)
atom tot = 0, power3 = 1
string ternary = to_base(n,3)
for i=length(ternary) to 1 by -1 do
tot += ternary[i] * power3
power3 *= 3
end for
end function

atom t0 = time()
printf(1,"%16s %15s %30s\n",{"decimal","ternary","binary"})
show(0,0)
show(1,1)
integer count = 2, n = 1
while count<6 do
atom n3 = createpalindrome3(n)
if remainder(n3,2) then
string n2 = to_base(n3,2)
if n2[\$]=1 and n2=reverse(n2) then
show(count,n3)
count += 1
end if
end if
n += 1
end while

## Raku

(formerly Perl 6) Instead of searching for numbers that are palindromes in one base then checking the other, generate palindromic trinary numbers directly, then check to see if they are also binary palindromes (with additional simplifying constraints as noted in other entries). Outputs the list in decimal, binary and trinary.

<lang perl6>constant palindromes = 0, 1, |gather for 1 .. * -> \$p {

```   my \$pal = \$p.base(3);
my \$n = :3(\$pal ~ '1' ~ \$pal.flip);
next if \$n %% 2;
my \$b2 = \$n.base(2);
next if \$b2.chars %% 2;
next unless \$b2 eq \$b2.flip;
take \$n;
```

}

printf "%d, %s, %s\n", \$_, .base(2), .base(3) for palindromes[^6];</lang>

Output:
```0, 0, 0
1, 1, 1
6643, 1100111110011, 100010001

## REXX

### version 1

Programming note:   This version is quite a bit faster than the previous REXX program that was entered.

For this REXX program, a few deterministic assumptions were made:

•   for the requirement of binary palindromes, the number of binary digits have to be odd.
•   for the requirement of ternary palindromes, the numbers can't end in zero (in base 3).

The method used is to   (not find, but)   construct   a binary palindrome by:

•   using the binary version of a number (abcdef),   which may end in binary zeroes,
•   flipping the binary digits (fedcba)       [note that   a   is always   1   (one)],
•   constructing two binary palindromes:
•   abcdef   ||   0   ||   fedcba           and
•   abcdef   ||   1   ||   fedcba
•   (the above two concatenation (  ||  ) steps ensures an odd number of binary digits),
•   ensure the decimal versions are not evenly divisible by 3,
•   convert the decimal numbers to base 3,
•   ensure that the numbers in base 3 are palindromic.

## Ruby

This program is based on the fact that the double palindromic numbers in base 3 all have a "1" right in the middle. Also, both base 2 and base 3 representations have an odd number of digits.

1. 1 digit under the number of the palindromic doesn't become zero.
2. As for the N numbering-system, at the time of the multiple of N, 1 digit below becomes zero.
3. Palindromic by the even-number digit binary system is 3 multiples.
4. Palindromic by the even-number digit ternary-system is 4 multiples.
5. In palindromic by the ternary-system of the odd digit, the value of the center position is an even number in case of "0" or "2".

This program constructs base 3 palindromes using the above "rules" and checks if they happen to be binary palindromes.

<lang ruby>pal23 = Enumerator.new do |y|

``` y << 0
y << 1
for i in 1 .. 1.0/0.0                 # 1.step do |i|  (Ruby 2.1+)
n3 = i.to_s(3)
n = (n3 + "1" + n3.reverse).to_i(3)
n2 = n.to_s(2)
y << n  if n2.size.odd? and n2 == n2.reverse
end
```

end

puts " decimal ternary binary" 6.times do |i|

``` n = pal23.next
puts "%2d: %12d %s %s" % [i, n, n.to_s(3).center(25), n.to_s(2).center(39)]
```

## Tcl

We can use [format %b] to format a number as binary, but ternary requires a custom proc: <lang Tcl>proc format_%t {n} {

```   while {\$n} {
append r [expr {\$n % 3}]
set n [expr {\$n / 3}]
}
if {![info exists r]} {set r 0}
string reverse \$r
```

}</lang>

Identifying palindromes is simple. This form is O(n) with a large constant factor, but good enough:

<lang Tcl>proc pal? {s} {expr {\$s eq [string reverse \$s]}}</lang>

The naive approach turns out to be very slow: <lang Tcl>proc task Template:Find 6 {

```   for {set i 0} {\$find} {incr i} {
set b [format %b \$i]
set t [format_%t \$i]
if {[pal? \$b] && [pal? \$t]} {
puts "Palindrome: \$i (\$b) (\$t)"
incr find -1
}
}
```

}

Output:
```Palindrome: 0 (0) (0)
Palindrome: 1 (1) (1)
Palindrome: 6643 (1100111110011) (100010001)
Palindrome: 1422773 (101011011010110110101) (2200021200022)
21944474 microseconds per iteration```

22 seconds for only the first four elements .. not good enough! We can do much better than that by naively iterating the binary palindromes. This is nice to do in a coroutine:

<lang Tcl>package require Tcl 8.5 ;# for coroutines

proc 2pals {} {

```   yield 0
yield 1
while 1 {
incr i
set a [format %b \$i]
set b [string reverse \$a]
yield \${a}\$b
yield \${a}0\$b
yield \${a}1\$b
}
```

}</lang>

The binary strings emitted by this generator are not in increasing order, but for this particular task, that turns out to be unimportant.

Our main loop needs only minor changes: <lang Tcl>proc task Template:Find 6 {

```   coroutine gen apply {{} {yield; 2pals}}
while {\$find} {
set b [gen]
set i [scan \$b %b]
set t [format_%t \$i]
if {[pal? \$t]} {
puts "Palindrome: \$i (\$b) (\$t)"
incr find -1
}
}
rename gen {}
```

}

puts [time task]</lang> This version finds the first 6 in under 4 seconds, which is good enough for the task at hand:

Output:
```Palindrome: 0 (0) (0)
Palindrome: 1 (1) (1)
Palindrome: 6643 (1100111110011) (100010001)
Palindrome: 1422773 (101011011010110110101) (2200021200022)
Palindrome: 5415589 (10100101010001010100101) (101012010210101)
Palindrome: 90396755477 (1010100001100000100010000011000010101) (22122022220102222022122)
3643152 microseconds per iteration```

Plenty more optimisations are possible! Exploiting the observations in Ruby's implementation should make the 7th element reachable in reasonable time ...
