Palindromic Numbers?

"Did you know that if you multiply 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 that the answer is consecutive? Try it and then check the answer to see what happens.

Explanation: in a mathematical context a palindrome is a number that reads the same in either a forward or backward direction. In other words a palindrome (or palindromic number) is equal to its reverse. Thus for example 1331 is a palindrome."
