1980-82 that means 3 years: 1980, 1981, 1982.
Also the number of such identification numbres for each year will remain the same. Thus we will calculate the number for 1 year and then multiply it by 3.

For the year 1980
We have 07 slots: __ __ __ __ __ __ __
Out of which the first 2 are fixed: 8 0 __ __ __ __ __
Now, since the numbers can be repeated, we can fill each of the remaining 05 slots in 10 ways(0-9) each.
Hence the total Number of such IDs for 1980 is: 1x1x10x10x10x10x10 = 100000

Now since we need to do the same for 3 years
we can safely calculate the grand total: 3x100000
=3,00,000
