b/1 1-100 10 times + 1 for (77) =11
b/w 101-200 10 times + 1 more time (177) =11
b/w 201-300 10 times + 1 more time (277) = 11
b/w301-400 10 times + 1 more time (377) =11
b/w401-400 10 times + 1 more time (477) = 11
b/w501-600 10 times + 1 more time (577)= 11
b/w601-700 10 times + 1 more time (677)=11
b/w701-800 10 times + 10 times (for 7 being 1st digit) + 1 (777)=21
b/w 801-900 10 times + 1 more time (877) =11
b/w 901-1000 10 times + 1 more time (977) =11

99+11+1= 111

a) Unit’s place : i.e. 7,17,27,37…..97 = 10 times (between 1 to 100)
b) Tenth’s place: i.e. 70,71…79 = 10 times (between 1 to 100)
c) Hundred’s place: i.e. 700,701…..799= 100 times

So Upto 1000 it would be ten times for a and b: 10*10+10*10+100 = 300

control for each of the digits.

the first digit cannot be 7 so we only have xxx to control for.

controlling for hundreds digit
7xx - the tens place can be 10C1 and the ones place can be 10C1. therefore, 10*10 = 100 possibilities
x7x - same logic
xx7 - same logic

100 + 100 + 100 = 300
