**Steve**, Thursday, May 9, 2013 at 4:15pmIf the digits of A are abc, Then B is cba.

100c+10b+a - 100a+10b+c = 7k

99c-99a = 7k

99(c-a) = 7k

so, c-a is a multiple of 7. In fact, since c and a are both single digits, c-a=7.

so, A must begin with 1 or 2, making c either 8 or 9

So, of the given choices, 100<A<299

**Steve**, Thursday, May 9, 2013 at 4:48pmHmmm.

Since A=101,102,103,104,105,300,301,302,303,304 all don't work,

Both answers are true.

Since actually 107 works and 299 works,

107 <= A <= 299

You are right. I should not have excluded 299 from the solution set.
