Racecar is a Palindrome

A palindrome is a word, phrase, number or other sequence of elements that has the same meaning read forward or backwards. The word itself comes from the Greek roots palin meaning “again” and dromos meaning “way” or “direction.”

Some examples of a palindrome would be the name “Hannah” or the word “madam.” The word “racecar” is also a palindrome. Forward or back, it still reads the same.
