**Steve**, Wednesday, June 18, 2014 at 11:31amwhat's the trouble? Just start working in the clues. The number is

2.abcdefg...

c = a+b

b = c-a (well, duh)

b = c-1

It appears that the number is just

2.abc

c = a+c-1

a = 2c+1

Now, since a < 10, c < 5

So, if a = 0,1,2,3,4

then c = 1,3,5,7,9

and b = 1,2,3,4,5

So, we could have

2.011

2.123

2.235

2.347

2.459

If you don't want to allow repeated digits, then the only choices are

2.347

2.459
