  • math -

    Let x = number in ones place
    Let x + 2 = number in tens place
    Let x - 4 = number in hundreds place
    add all and set equal to 16
    x + x+2 + x-4 = 16
    x + x + x = 16 -2 + 4
    3x = 18
    divide both sides by 3
    3x/3 = 18/3
    x = 6

    Answer = three digit number is 286
