Find two five-digit numbers such that one is 4 times the other, and the digits of the first are the reverse of the digits of the second. In other words, ABCDE × 4 = EDCBA?

    I don't think this is possible, unless you count 00000 as a 5 digit number.

    (Ax10000+Bx1000+Cx100+Dx10+E) × 4 = Ex10000+Dx1000+Cx100+Bx10+A

    if a number is divisible by 4, its last 2 digits must be divisible by 4 too.. so, after multiplication of 4, clearly, the last 2 digits have to b divisible by 4 the number must be less than 25000, so, after multiplication of 4, the last 2 digits can be 12 or 32 but, in case of 32, after multiplication by 4, the product will start with 9, which opposes the condition.. so, first 2 digits are 21 so, after multiplication with 4, first digit of the product will be 8, so, last digit of the original number is 8 so, we get the condition: (21008+100x+10y)*4=80012+1000x+100y simplifying: y= (67+5x)/16 as x and y, both r integers with domain from 0 to 9, the condition will only be satisfied in case of x=9, y=7 so, the number is 21978
