    Part a) Letís find the number which contains no digit 8. The first digit can be anyone of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7, or 9. Then the other two digits can be anyone of 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7, or 9.
    So there are (8\cdot 9\cdot 9)=648 that do not have a digit 8.
    So how many do contain at least one eight?

    Now you try the others.
