Number of 3-digit palindromes... 9 ways for the hundreds place. 9 ways for the tens place. 1 way for the ones place. \(9 \times 9 \times 1 = 81\) which is wrong?

    why is there only one way for the ones place?

    you can have 9 in the first place, and 10 in the second place. 111 is also a palindrome.

    Because the ones place is always equal to the hundreds place.

    010 is not a 3 digit number, but a 3 digit palindrome.
