Since 8 does not occur in 1000, we have to count the number of times 8 occurs when we list the integers from 1 to 999. Any number between 1 and 999 is of the form xyz, where

Let us first count the numbers in which 8 occurs exactly once.

Since 8 can occur atone place in ways. There are such numbers.

Next, 8 can occur in exactly two places in such numbers. Lastly, 8 can occur in all three digits in one number only.

Hence, the number of times 8 occur is
