    if i am not wrong the sum of all 3 digited numbers is 279720 with each of the distinct non zero digits a,b,c exactly once it is divisible by integers greater than 222

    see in any order the each digit 1 through 9 will appear as many as(8X7) times in the unit , tenth and hundredth place

    now the sum of 1 through 9=45 hence required sum of all reqd + 3digited number is=45*56*(100+10+1)=279720
