Expert's answer

a) 7*(2*(10-2)+2*(10-1))+2*(100-9*1-10*1)=428

The amount of our numbers is the same on these diapasons (100 - 199), (200 -299), (400 - 499), (500 - 599), (600 - 699), (800 - 899), (900 - 999).

Let's look at (100 - 199). There we have: 103,107,113,117,...,130-136,138-139,143,147,...,170-172,174-179,183,187,193,197 =

2*(10-2)+2*(10-1). So we have 7*(2*(10-2)+2*(10-1)). And the amount of our numbers is the same on these diapasons:

(300 - 399), (700 - 799).

Let's look at (300 - 399). There we have all numbers, except: 307,317,...,370-379,387,397 = 100-9*1-10*1.

So we have 2*(100-9*1-10*1).

b) 7*2*1+2*((10-1)*1+10*1)=52

The amount of our numbers is the same on these diapasons (100 - 199), (200 - 299), (400 - 499), (500 - 599), (600 - 699), (800 - 899), (900 - 999). Let's look at (100 - 199). There we have: 137,173 = 2*1=2.

So we have 7*2=14. And the amount of our numbers is the same on these diapasons: (300 - 399), (700 - 799).

Let's look at (300 - 399). There we have: 307,317,...,397,370-379 = (10-1)*1+10*1=19 So we have 2*19=38.

The amount of our numbers is the same on these diapasons (100 - 199), (200 -299), (400 - 499), (500 - 599), (600 - 699), (800 - 899), (900 - 999).

Let's look at (100 - 199). There we have: 103,107,113,117,...,130-136,138-139,143,147,...,170-172,174-179,183,187,193,197 =

2*(10-2)+2*(10-1). So we have 7*(2*(10-2)+2*(10-1)). And the amount of our numbers is the same on these diapasons:

(300 - 399), (700 - 799).

Let's look at (300 - 399). There we have all numbers, except: 307,317,...,370-379,387,397 = 100-9*1-10*1.

So we have 2*(100-9*1-10*1).

b) 7*2*1+2*((10-1)*1+10*1)=52

The amount of our numbers is the same on these diapasons (100 - 199), (200 - 299), (400 - 499), (500 - 599), (600 - 699), (800 - 899), (900 - 999). Let's look at (100 - 199). There we have: 137,173 = 2*1=2.

So we have 7*2=14. And the amount of our numbers is the same on these diapasons: (300 - 399), (700 - 799).

Let's look at (300 - 399). There we have: 307,317,...,397,370-379 = (10-1)*1+10*1=19 So we have 2*19=38.
