Python program to check if a given string is number Palindrome

In this article, we will learn about the solution and approach to solve the given problem statement.

Problem statement

Given a string input, we need to create a python function to check whether it is a palindrome or not.

A string is referred to be palindrome if the reverse of the string is identical with string.

We can do this by two methods −

  • Reversal by slicing
  • Comparison via negative indexing

Here we will be learning reversal pf string bu the help of slicing.

To reverse a string by th method of slicing specify the following statement −

Str[ : : -1 ]

Where the start and end parameters are unassigned and step value is -1.

Now let’s see the implementation −


num = input('Enter any number : ')
   val = int(num)
   if num == str(num)[::-1]:
      print('The given number is PALINDROME')
      print('The given number is NOT a palindrome')
except ValueError:
   print("That's not a valid number, Try Again !")


Enter any number : 78287
The given number is PALINDROME

Here we used exception handling to ensure that input string contains only numeric characters.
