Round down the digits per place.

Hundreds : 300 + 200 = 500
so we know that the answer is going to be in 500+
Tens : 60 + 30 = 90
so we know that the answer is going to be in 590+
Ones: 8 + 1 = 9
so we know that the answer is going to be in 599

Since the digits do not make a carry (if you know what I mean), or the numbers when combined don't reach 10, it can be solved from the left to the right.
