Challenge #257: Palindromes

A solution to last week's challenge can be found hereSlide1.png

 

Palindromes are words that are spelled the same backwards as forwards. They aren't inherently better than other words, but they have a special name and we think that counts for something! Speaking of counting...

 

For this week's challenge, count the number of palindromes in the provided dataset. Also, find the most common starting letter for the palindromes and count the number of palindromes that begin with that letter.
