I have a query on the extreme problem of the day (image attached)

. I got the answer 111 too. However, won’t the largest integer be the no. itself. In that case we would need the values of a,b,c thereby the answer would be - can’t be determined.

111(a+b+c) ; if a = 9 ; b = 9 ; c = 9 then the no. is 2,997.
