2+0+1+9 divide by how many there are which is 4

We have these three digit numbers

 

102, 109, 120, 129, 190, 192, 201, 209, 210, 219, 290, 291,901, 910, ,902, 912, 920, 921

 

And their average is    =   429 1/3

@CPhill, isn't the answer 433?

I got 433 as well.

 

I think the confusion stems from whether a digit can be repeated or not. 

 

CPhil looks to be assuming they cannot.

 

There's nothing in the problem that states they can't.

 

The full list of numbers is

 

{200, 202, 201, 209, 220, 222, 221, 229, 210, 212, 211, 219, 290, 
292, 291, 299, 100, 102, 101, 109, 120, 122, 121, 129, 110, 112, 111, 
119, 190, 192, 191, 199, 900, 902, 901, 909, 920, 922, 921, 929, 910, 
912, 911, 919, 990, 992, 991, 999}

 

and this has mean 433
