Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are 999 whole numbers that are less than 1000 (from 1 up to 999) Since we want the numbers to be greater than 1 we need to remove the 1 from the set and also we remove the 8 because we don't want that number. So after removing two numbers we have 9992=997 numbers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0think you might have missed this one watchmath. i read it to say "how many three digit numbers are there where none of the digits are 8 and at least one is 2" for example 811 is out as is 345 but 231 is in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Or it could mean, all numbers greater than 8 and smaller than 2. Because settheoretically a natural number is the set of all it's predecessors.
