Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A threedigit number, XYZ, is formed of three different nonzero digits X, Y , and Z. A new number is formed by rearranging the same three digits. What is the greatest possible difference between the two numbers? (For ex ample, 345 could be rearranged into 435, for a difference of 435 − 345 = 90.)
