Start with a two-digit number, reverse the digits to make a new number then subtract the smaller from the larger number. Repeat this process until you reach a single digit. Start with other numbers. What do you notice, answer with the explanation why is it happening.

What is the number if it divides exactly by 13 and when you write its digits in reverse order you make a square number. (You get a square number when you multiply a number by itself - 64 is square because it is 8 times 8)
