#2**+1 **

1 - Start with the first digit from the left. You have 6 choices:2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

2 - Start with the 2nd digit from the left. You have 9 choices: 0, 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 (when it begins with 2).

3 - Start with the 3rd digit from the left. You have 8 choices: they could be any of remaining 8 digits as long as they are different from the 1st and 2nd digits. if the 2nd is 3, then you have: 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

**4 - So, the total number will be: 6 x 9 x 8 = 432 such numbers.**
