The answer is a two digit number

sum = 1289 + 1298 + 2189 + ... etc

80.

As we would have a total of 256 different no. with a equal representation of each of the 4 digits in all the places, we would have the sum of all units digits as (1+2+8+9)*64 = 1280. So the units digits is 0.
The tens digit is 1280 + 128 ( carry ) = 8 with 140 carried to the hundreth place.Hence 80.

Total no of 4 digits nos = 4! = 24.

Each digit comes an equal no of times in units and tens place.

sum of units = (1+2+8+9) * 4 = 80
sum of tens= (1+2+8+9) * 4 = 80

therefore sum of all units and tens = 880

last 2 digits = 80

My solution

Here we go,

Sum of units digits is 3!*(1+2+8+9) = 6*20 = 120 => put 0 carry over 12
Sum of tens digits is 3!*(1+2+8+9) + 12 = 120 + 12 = 132 => put 2 carry over 13

tens and units digits are, therefore, 20

The entire sum is 133,320, if I am not mistaken

sparky, I think that you are assuming that the numbers cannot be repeated.

there can be a total of 4^4 numbers, yours just give 4*3!(24)

:) hehe, when I wrote the problem I meant no repeats, and I said in the problem itself that 'all possible four digit numbers that can be constructed from those 4 digits'

if you did it for 4^4, it's cool as long as you understand the concept it all that matters, the rest is details.
:-D
