- The second three digits are in descending order.
- Both the last four digits and the last two digits are multiples of sixty.
- My last four digits are not a multiple of 43.
- My first three digits are the square of an integer less than twenty.

X is a three-digit number. Y is the number obtained when the digits of X are reversed. Z is the six-digit number obtained by writing X and Y back to back, with X written first. W is the six-digit number obtained by writing Y and X back to back, with Y written first. What is the largest number which the sum of Z and W must be divisible by?
Rhonda’s zip code has five digits. Two of the digits are the same. One of the digits is three times another digit. Three of the digits are consecutive integers. The zip code starts with a zero. What is the largest possible sum for the digits of Rhonda’s zip code?

I’m a three digit number, and the sum of my digits is 13. My first two digits differ by 3, and my last two digits differ by 5. What numbers could I be?
Two positive integers, A and B, both have 3 digits. A is bigger than B. A – B is between 300 and 400. What is the value of A - B?
I'm a three digit number. My first two digits multiply to 12, and my last two digits add to 14. What number am I?
I'm thinking of a three-digit number. The sum of my number's first and last digits is a perfect square. The sum of my number's first and second digits is also a perfect square. If my third digit is subtracted from my second digit, the result is 5. If my number is not a multiple of three, and it has no repeated digits, what is my number?

I don't have any repeated digits, and my digits are not in either ascending order or descending order. I am a multiple of three, but not of six. What number am I?
Find the smallest positive integer which must be added to 30504 so that the resulting number is a palindrome.
Note: a palindrome is a number in which the digits would read the same forward and backward.
