This was the first question I was asked and is considered a warm up.

public static boolean isPalindrome(int someInt) { final int WIDTH = 8; boolean isPalindrome = true; for (int i = 0; i < WIDTH && isPalindrome == true; i++) { int maskLower = (int) Math.pow(2, i); int maskUpper = (int) Math.pow(2, WIDTH - (i+1)); boolean bitLowerOn = ((maskLower & someInt) == maskLower) ? true : false; boolean bitUpperOn = ((maskUpper & someInt) == maskUpper) ? true : false; isPalindrome = bitLowerOn && bitUpperOn && isPalindrome || !bitLowerOn && !bitUpperOn; } return isPalindrome; }

anon.. would this work for a number like 17 (10001)?

You are given a predefined function which generates random number from 1 to 5. You need to use this function and create another function which will generate random number from 1 to 7. Now most important thing is to remember that new random function should be even (i.e. the number generated should be unpredictable, and evenly spaced out).
