    Explanation::
    We need 1000.
    Units place :So we need 0 in the units place. Minimum possiblity is to add 8 , 5 tyms in units place. Adding 8, five tymx gives 40.carry is 4
    Tens place:
    Carry 4+x= 0 in tens place(10). So x is 6 . So we need to get 6(adding 8 two tyms in tens place will make it possible -16).16+4=20 so 2 carry
    Hundreds place:
    Along with 2 carry a single 8 can make 10

    First let us assume the number is 888
    Now add 88 for the above numberi.e
    888+88=976
    The above equation has already used 8 eights now we need to add the the remaining three 8’s left over individually for the above result i.e
    888+88=976
    976+8+8+8=976+24=1000
