Similarly one may ask, how many times the digit 3 appears in numbers from 1 to 1000?

Within the 9 one-**digit numbers**, a“**3**” **digit appears** only once. Within the90 two-**digit numbers**, the **digit**“**3**” **appears** 19 **times**: ten**times** in the tens place:{30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39}

Also, how many times does the digit 5 appear from 1 to 1000?

I believe the **digit** (number) **5 appears** 20**times**.(**5**,15,25,35,45,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,65,75,85,95)count the **5's** that **appear**. Answer: 20 **times digit5** is used between **1** and 100.

There are 299 (180+119) **3s** between 1 and**1,000**. 20 =(3,13,23,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,43,53,63,73,83,93);
