#1  forget about the blue pencils. There are 8 yellows in each package. So, in 426 packages, there are 8*426=3408.
Note that the title of the problem set was "Multiply a 3 digit number by a 1 digit number". That should have been a clue that your approach was wrong.
#2  multiply and check:
3*616 = 1848
4*616 = 2464
5*616 = 3080
So, which is closest to 3000?
#3
So, whatcha think? Are 2250 erasers enough for 3000 pencils?

1. Why did you multiply by 4? You only need to find the total of yellow pencils.
2. 3000 / 616 = ?
3. Right.
