I am a number greater that 99 and less that 1,000. Two of my digits that aren't next to each other are the same. My tens digit could not be greater and it is 1 more than my hundreds digit. What number am I?

Start with greatest tens digit... Must be 9...

Tens digit is one more than hundreds, so that must be 8...

two numbers not next to each other must be the same, so the first ant third numbers both must be 8

Tens digit is one more than hundreds, so that must be 8...
