Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

let the number be xyz

y is a multiple of 5 hence it is either 5 or 0

y=x+!

z is less than x

So y must be 5 since x can not be -1

so x=4

x+Y+z should give a multiple of 6

4+5=9

the nearest multiple of 6 from 9 is 12

so z=3

The number is thus =453

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
