Hi,

I think the answer is 72.
For 800:
if the ten's digit is even, we will have 4X5 odd numbers
if the ten's digit is odd, we will have 5X4 odd numbers

For 900:
if the ten's digit is even, we will have 5X4 odd numbers
if the ten's digit is odd, we will have 4X3 odd numbers

So in total we will have 72 odd numbers.

To explain the above numbers, consider:
For 800, if the ten's digit is even, we will have 4X5 odd numbers
we will have
801, 803, 805, 807, 809
821, 823, 825, 827, 829
841, 843, 845, 847, 849
861, 863, 865, 867, 869
881, 883, 885, 887, 889 cannot be considered

For 900:
if the ten's digit is odd, we will have 4X3 odd numbers
913, 915, 917,
931, 935, 937,
951, 953, 957,
971, 973, 975,


regards,
Jack
