$H \text{ "T" } U$
$9 \text{ "9" } 8$

The number is $998$

#### Explanation:

This is a question dealing with place values of numbers.

Numbers are written with digits in the order:

$H \text{ "T" } U$

With H indicating the number of hundreds
T indicates the number of tens
U indicates the number of units or 'ones'.

Janie's number has:

8 ones, or 8 units, so in the units place, write $8$
9 tens, so in the tens place, write $9$
9 hundreds, so in the hundreds place, write $9$
(the number of hundreds is the same as the tens)

$H \text{ "T" } U$
$9 \text{ "9" } 8$
