while driving his basketball team to a tournament Mr Reinhart noticed his odometer read 21912km. Being a lover of mathematical curiosities he noticed this number was a palindrome. (a palindrome is a number that reads the same way forwards and backwards). Mr Reinhart said "I bet it will take a long time for that to happen again!" but just 105 minutes later he noticed his odometer was another palindrome! How fast was Mr. Reinhart driving during his part of his trip ? (PLEASE HELP)

    speed = distance/time speed = 21912/(60*105) speed=3.5km/s

    I think reckkimini has not read the question right the next palindrome will be 22022 i.e. after a distance of 110 km which is covered in 105 min
