    Perhaps you could state more clearly what you are having problems with? Making an arbitrarily large display with discrete LED's is reasonable simple.

    However, the interpretation of -
    - is difficult. This needs to be expanded and explained considerably. Things such as: what queue and what calculator? How large is "large"?

    I *think* our OP wants a 3-digit 7-segment display to manage the queue at some kind of shop perhaps, where a customer would take a ticket with a number printed on it, and then wait for their number to come up on the display.

    Having a numeric keypad would make the logic function considerably more complex. Just a couple of buttons to increment or decrement the display would be considerably easier to implement.

    The easiest solution parts-wise would be a microcontroller, but the learning curve would be rather steep for the programming end.
