List out the numbers from 1 to 150 in a vertical column. Left align all of the numbers to where the leading digit of the number is directly on top of the next number's leading digit

(e.g. for the numbers 9, 10, and 11. 9 would be above 1 and that above 1 where zero would have nothing above it and 1 below it

ex.

...

9

10

11

...

)

remove the nothing space above all the numbers to where the numbers are shifted up until they are at the top creating a list of new numbers. With this new list of numbers what is the probability of randomly selecting 322? 99? and 140?

the problem statement is unclear. i'm unsure of what you mean by

"remove the nothing space above all the numbers to where the numbers are shifted up until they are at the top creating a list of new numbers."

do you mean concatinate a number below with the number above together?

here is a snapshot of what i mean starting at number 91. The columns that have no number above them (the nothing space) should be shifted up so that each of the three columns start at a number.
