    Tricky Number

    If you remove 7, then subtract 17, & then remove 8 from me, you have 160. But if you remove 6, then subtract 17, then remove 8 from me, you have 170. Finally, if you remove 1, then subtract 4, then remove 1 from me, you have 762. What number am I?

    Hi Tony. I noticed you were giving this some thought. Correct, of course.
