My ones digit is 3 more than my tens digit and my hundrefs is 1 less than my tens. what number i am...

the number is 854

Step-by-step explanation:

Let 'x' be the number in the ones place

'y' for the tens place

'z' for the hundreds place

x = y + 3

z = y - 1

x + y + z = 17

Substitute

(y+3) + y + (y-1) = 17

3y = 17 -3 +1

3y = 15

y = 5

x = y + 3

x = 5 + 3

x = 8

z = y - 1

z = 5-1

z = 4

xyz = 854
