Hey, I'm entering a comp on the radio, and can't remember any old probability stuff. What I have to do is 'guess' a 3 digit number. I already know that 1 is the middle digit and it has an 8 somewhere in it, and I can cross some options off (other people tried and failed to guess it)
Could you please help me come up with the most likely option/s?
If those are your only possibilities, then you have a 1 in 13 chances to get the numbers...
But what is the system of this game exactly?

Yea, I got that far haha.
Every hour someone can call up and say a 3 digit number that they think it is, so I've been checking off wrong numbers, but it's only a certain amount of time before someone gets it...
The winner gets $10,000! I know they broadcast on the frequency 91.8 in a different region, so that'll be my first guess, but I was just wondering if there was a mathematical way of working out the most probable number
