C=80?

Three types of numbers:

XYX -> 3*9*1 = 27 (Egs: 717, 858.....)
XXY -> 3*1*9 = 27-1 = 26(need to subtract 1 because 700 is not allowed) (Egs: 772, 884....)
XYY -> 3*9*1 = 27 (Egs:755, 866.....)

Sum = 80

Numbers with first digit as 7 and next two digits as same = 8 ( exclude 7,0 )
Numbers with first digit as 7 and next two digits as same = 9 ( exclude 8 )
Numbers with first digit as 7 and next two digits as same = 9 ( exclude 9 )

Numbers with first and second digits are 7 = 9 ( last digit can't be 7)
Numbers with first and third digits are 7 = 9 ( second digit can't be 7)

Similary we get 9+9+9+9 for second and third digits as 8,9 when the first digit is 8 or 9.

Total = 8 + 9*8 = 80.
