The correct answer is 153 

100a+10b+c=17×(a+b+c)    -----(1)

100a+10b+c+198=a+10b+100c ---(2)

99a-99c=-198 

a-c=-2     ---(3)

... c=a+2    ----(4) 

a+c=b-1 ---(5) 

2a-b=-3 

2a+3=b 

 

In equation 1

100a+20a+30+c=17(a+2a+3+c)

100a+20a+30+a+2=17(a+2a+3+a+2)

53a=53

a=53 ---

C=1+2=3

b=2+3=5

Hence answer is 

100+50+3=153
