Explain your reasoning. Also, can PR or CR be used for this problem...how so?


I get none of the above answers... :(

The numbers are:

707, 717, 727,...797 - 9 numbers (excluding 777)
711, 722, 733, ...799 - 8 numbers (excluding 700 and 777)

808, 818, 828,...898 - 9 numbers
800, 811, 822,...899 - 9 numbers

909, 919, 929, ...989 - 9 numbers
900, 911, 922, ...988 - 9 numbers

Totals to 53..

We will count only from 700-799

7XX where X is any digit other than 7. = 9
7X7 where X is any digit other than 7 = 9
77X where X is any digit other than 7 = 9
Total form 700-799 = 27
Similarly there are 27 from 800-899 and 27 from 900-999.

Total = 27+27+27 = 81
but we have to exclude 700.
So answer = 81-1 = 80

Three digit number can have only following 3 patterns:
A. all digits are distinct;
B. two digits are alike and third is different;
C. all three digits are alike.

We need to calculate B. B=Total - A - C

Total numbers from 700 to 999 = 299 (3-digit numbers greater than 700);
A. all digits are distinct = 3*9*8=216 (first digit can have only three values 7, 8, or 9);
C. all three are alike = 3 (777, 888, 999).

So, 299-216-3=80.

Answer: C.
