# 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
