# Palindrome program in Python using recursive method

In this tutorial you will learn how to write a program in Python to check a given number is palindrome or not using recursive method.

Before moving directly on the writing the program to check whether a given number is palindrome or not using recursion, you should know

## What is Palindrome Number?

A Palindrome number is a number which reverse is equal to the original number means number itself.

For example : 121, 111, 1223221, etc.

In the above example you can see that 121 is a palindrome number. Because reverse of the 121 is same as 121.

## How our program will behave?

Suppose if someone gives an input 121 then our program should print “the given number is a palindrome”.

And if someone given input 123 the our program should print “the given number is not a palindrome number”.

## Python program for palindrome number using recursive method

``````n = int(input("please give a number : "))

def reverse(num):
if num<10:
return num
else:
return int(str(num%10) + str(reverse(num//10)))

def isPalindrome(num):
if num == reverse(num):
return 1
return 0
if isPalindrome(n) == 1:
print("Given number is a palindrome")
else:
print("Given number is a not palindrome") ``````

Output:
