Python: Reverse the digits of a given number and add it to the original

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def rev_number(n):
  s = 0
  while True:
    k = str(n)
    if k == k[::-1]:
      break
    else:
      m = int(k[::-1])
      n += m
      s += 1
  return n 

print(rev_number(1234))
print(rev_number(1473))

Sample Output:

5555
9339
