3-digit, daily numbers 2011-09-29
From Margaret:
I need the list/group for a raffle that would contain the combinations for a 3 digit (000-999) daily number. There would be 100 tickets sold with 10 3-digit numbers from each numerical group beginning from 000's, 100's 200's, 300's,...900's. No duplicates/replacement. What would be the list of possible combinations of each group of 100 tickets, keeping each different group/list of combinations in separate blocks of 100 tickets without duplication. So I could use 1 list of 100 this year and the next list of combos next year and so forth. Please help!

Example: 000,197,245,367,445,569,618,777,842,964

What would be the possible lists of each 100 tickets? Thank you

From cecille:
my son have a homework, but i don't understand the question. here's the problem:
choose any three digits that are less than ten.
make all the two digit number you can using those three digits.
add up the two digit numbers you created and divided by the sum of the original three digits.
record your answer. then do it again with another three digits. write your observation about the answer.
