In terms of probability for a 5 number palindrome, the 2 first and last numbers must be the same which has a 1/10 probability, and the 2nd and 2nd to last numbers must be the same, also a 1/10 probability. To find the probability that a palindrome 5 number will occur at random, multiply the odds of the two conditions:
1/10 * 1/10 = 1/100

A=1,2,3..9......9
B=0,1,2..9.....10
C=0,1,2...9.....10

9*10*10=900

There are 9*10*10*10*10=90000 5-digit numbers

900/90000= 1/100
