One hundred large boxes are placed on the table. Some of these boxes are selected and into each of them 8 smaller boxes are placed. Then some of these smaller boxes are selected and into each of them 8 smaller boxes are placed. This process is repeated a few times. At the end of this process there are 233 empty boxes altogether. How many boxes are there in total?
