# Python Math: Find the next smallest palindrome of a specified number

## Python Math: Exercise-22 with Solution

Write a python program to find the next smallest palindrome of a specified number.

A palindromic number or numeral palindrome is a number that remains the same when its digits are reversed. Like 15951, for example, it is "symmetrical". The term palindromic is derived from palindrome, which refers to a word (such as " REDIVIDER" or even "LIVE EVIL ") whose spelling is unchanged when its letters are reversed.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

``````import sys
def Next_smallest_Palindrome(num):
numstr = str(num)
for i in range(num+1,sys.maxsize):
if str(i) == str(i)[::-1]:
return i

print(Next_smallest_Palindrome(99));
print(Next_smallest_Palindrome(1221));
```
```

Sample Output:

```101
1331
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Getting rid of unwanted characters:

You can get rid of whitespaces or any specific character using strip methods in Python. You can use either plain strip for both sides, lstrip for the left side and rstrip for the right side only.

```str="+++Welcome python+++"
str.strip()

print(str)```

Output:

`+++Welcome python+++`
