Abstract

Any number may be written in many different ways, using different strings in different bases. In few, very special cases, a symmetry emerges which is usually hidden beneath the surface: 230164 and 164230 are both equal to 54284 in base ten. This article analyzes the solution set to the (constrained) Diophantine equation that implements such symmetry, culminating in a conjecture on the number of solutions of the equation.
