# Find the largest palindrome made from the product of two 3-digit numbers, just a small edit needed

I wrote the program however I wonder how can I edit and show in the output the two products from which I got the output:

``````def check_palindrome(s):
"""Checks whether the given string is palindrome"""
return s == s[::-1]
max_product = 0
for i in range(999, 900, -1):
for j in range(i, 900, -1):
product = i * j
if check_palindrome(str(product)):
max_product = max(max_product, product)
print(max_product)
``````

On

In the same way you are updating `max_product`, you can use two more variables (`a` and `b`) and keep updating them when necessary (when `product` is greater than `max_product`):

``````def check_palindrome(s):
"""Checks whether the given string is palindrome"""
return s == s[::-1]

max_product = a = b = 0

for i in range(999, 900, -1):
for j in range(i, 900, -1):
product = i * j
if check_palindrome(str(product)):
if product > max_product:     # if greater product
max_product = product     # update max_product
a = i                     # update a
b = j                     # update b

print('%d * %d = %d' % (a, b, max_product))
``````

Also, you can use this for updating, and for shorter code:

``````max_product, a, b = product, i, j
``````
