**Ms. Sue**, Sunday, November 4, 2012 at 1:58pmUse trial and error.

The hundreds digit is 6, 7, 8, or 9

The ones digit is 0, 1, 2, or 3

The tens digit is 7, 8, or 9

Can you figure this out now?

**Steve**, Sunday, November 4, 2012 at 1:58pmif hundreds-ones=6, then we have

9x3

8x2

7x1

6x0

Since the digits add to 19, 7x1 and 6x0 are out, leaving

9x3 or 8x2

If tens is greatest, 9x3 is out, so we must have

892

This must be the number, since the only other choice would be 298, where the difference between hundreds and ones is still 6, but in the other direction

**Damon**, Sunday, November 4, 2012 at 2:24pmx y z

x + y + z = 19

|x-z| = 6

x >/= 5

y >/= 6

so x+y >/= 11

so z </= 8 to get 19 sum

z < 6 because y is biggest

choices

x 5 6 7 8 9

y 6 7 8 9

z 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

but x and z differ by 6 so

x 5 6 7 8 9

y 6 7 8 9

z 0 1 2 3

now what adds to 19 there with y biggest?

none until y = 9

so x 9 z

but x and z differ by six

8 and 2 differ by six

8 9 2 ?
