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

Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli were batting on 94. Seven runs were required to win by the team and only three balls were left.
At the end, both of them secured a century without being out. How can this be feasible?
