I'm confused :?

I've got 10 possible numbers
100 1+0 is 1 greater than 0
111 1+1 is 1 greater than 1
122 1+2 is 1 greater than 2
133 ....etc
144
155
166
177
188
199

That gives 10/100. What am I missing???

integers 100 through 199, inclusive, what is the
probability that the first digit and the last digit of the
integer are each equal to one more than the middle
digit
?

only possible number is 101

1/100

The only number between 100 and 199 that satisfies this condition is 101.

Probability = 1/100

The number is 101. So, the probability is 1/100.
