You are right that is the range.
Total number in 800-899 range = 9 (tenth digit and unit digit are same and not equal to 8)
+ 9 (hundredth digit and unit digit are same=8 and tenth digit not equal to 8) +9 ( hundredth didgit and tenth digit =8 and unit digit not equal to 8)
= 27

Total number = 27+27+27 -1 = 80
