Since there cannot be repetitions,

Number of choices for the second digit = 3

similarly,

Number of choices for the third digit = 2

By the multiplication principle, the number of different 3-digit numbers with distinct digits that can be made from 4

choices for 1st digit: 2 (3 or 4)

choices for 2nd digit: 3

choices for 3rd digit: 2

so, there are really only 12 possible numbers less than 500
