    There should be a total of 9x8x7 numbers to sum up. Do you agree?

    see,,6 nos can be formed using a,b,c now , out of these 6 , a comes 2 times in the first place , 2 times in the 2nd , 2 times in the 3rd same with b and c if we add em all ,, 100(a+b+c)*2 + 10(a+b+c)*2 + (a+b+c)*2 =222(a+b+c) so is the ans 222 ?

    So, taking the units column, you can sum 1 x (8x7) + 2 x (8x7) + 3 x (8x7) + ... to 9 x (8x7). Get that sum and add to that a similar treatment for the other 2 columns.

    in base 10 notation, suppose 123, we write it as 100(1) + 10(2) + 3 same for abc 100a + 10b +c
