Can someone please help me with this question I'm struggling with?

Ninety-nine greater than the number formed by reversing the order of the digits.

The answer must be a 3 digit number.


I tried 99 + 99 = 198 but it doesn't fit as the right answer on this crossword I'm doing.

Any thoughts?

If the answer must be a 3 digit number, then the number you add 99 to must also be 3 digits for the reverse to work.

Is this a UKMT crossword by any chance?
