148+148+148=444

Units x, Tens y, Hundreds z

300z+30y+3x=100y+10y+y
300z+30y+3x=111y
300z+3x=81y
100z+x=27y equ 1

x, y, z are all integers and all less then 10

Trial and error
27*9=243 when y=9 but then x =43 not possible
Similarly for others

24*4=108 when y=4, z=1, x=8

Therefore the number is 148

Congratulations, Anand jee! Keep it up...

In the problem, middle digit is repeated on addition. As such 148 is the correct answer as the middle digit is 4 and sum comes to 444. Good try Naga Jyothi jee!
