Help needed!

How many four digit numbers containing \(\text{NO}\) zeros have the property that whenever any one of its four digits is removed, the resulting three-digit number is divisible by \(\large{3}\) ?

Thanks~

Any help appreciated peeps!

243?

We can easily prove that all the digits must have the same remainder modulo 3, and that any such contruction will satisfy the property.

There are three groups with the same remainder modulo 3, \( (1,4,7) ; (2,5,8) ; (3,6,9) \). After selecting the group, there are three possible digits to select for four places. Hence the answer is \( 3* (3^4) = 243 \)
