Try with Hints

Let us assume these three digit numbers are $ABC$, $DEF$.

According to the question $D=2C$.

Let's follow the given condition and try to construct the smallest numbers.

So here $ABC=102$.

And if I follow the given condition then $DEF= 435$.

We did this keeping in mind that repetitions are not allowed.

Now calculate the answer.
