Hi all;

What does 'as many' means here?

Make and name as many 3-digit numerals using the digits...

Let's do mathematics Book 3

There seem to be a couple of words left out.

Make and name as many 3-digit numerals numbers as possible using the digits:...

Is it an error?

Yes, leaving out "as possible" is an error in that sentence.

Without them, the sentence is incomplete, unless you're referring to an earlier mentioned number and using "as many" to mean "the same number as".
We can make 18 three digit numbers from these digits. Make as many three digit numbers from the following digits.
But this doesn't seem to be the case here.
