    (2/3)*x, 3*x, x*(2/3),x x=3

    2,9,2,3

    1. The only digit not mention is the 4th digit.
    2. Starting with the 4th digit; initial number 3,makes the fourth digit in the final number 2.
    , , ,2
    3. This make the 1 digit final answer 2.
    2, , ,2
    4. The second digit is then 9=3*3
    2,9, ,2
    5. Now the third digit is (2/3) of the second digit 2.

    2923

    6. This number meets the requirement of 2 digits smaller than 4.

    2,9,2,3 or 2923
