2. Multiply 11 by 101.
3. ...
But the most extraordinary way must surely be this one :

112 + 122 + 132 + 142 + 152 + 162 = 1111
In borderprime world 1111 occurs a few time as displacement value
10^731+1111
10^1512+1111
10^1787+1111
10^2146+1111
10^3987+1111
10^4056+1111
10^5296+1111

So far only these 7 positive displacements have been discovered !

The repdigit 8888 can be expressed as the sum of just two consecutive primes
4441 + 4447

The following repdigits are once converted into hexadecimal base also palindromic !

666666 = A2C2A

The repdigit number 777777 can be expressed as the sum of three consecutive primes
259229 + 259271 + 259277

Two repdigit numbers of the form (4)n can be expressed as the sum
of the squares of consecutive numbers (8 and 63 resp.)
n = 5 44444 712 + 722 + ... + 772 + 782
n = 6 444444 512 + 522 + ... + 1122 + 1132
