or you could be 830, but your a number so I guess you don’t have much in the way of brains.

It’s definitely 194. This is because, the only digit that can be 8 more than another digit in a number is 8 or 9; since it’s the 100s didgit that is 8 less than the tens digit, and the number is a 3 digit number, we know the digit in the hundreds place can’t be 0 (that would effectively make it a 2 digit number); this means that the number in the 100s place has to be a 1. Then, the tens digit is 8 more than that, so 9, and the ones digit is five less than that, so a 4. I hope this helps!
