14: O gnats, tango! [**]
June 19, 2016
Earlier this week I was rob...er...exploring tombs and I accidently triggered a trap that locked me in a room. With me are a pair of plates, a few thousand tiny statues of gnats and a puzzle that should lead to my escape. I need to place specific numbers of gnats onto each of the two plates. The number of gnats on the left plate needs to be a 3-digit palindrome, while the number on the right needs to be a 4-digit palindrome, with a difference between them of 22. I remember that a palindromic number is one where if you read it forwards and backwards, it looks the same. For example, 43534 and 5885 are both palindromes.
Please send in solutions; I want to get out of here.
