a.18
b.16
c.12
d.8
e.4
2. 1,234+ 1,243+ 1,324+..........+ 4,321
the addition problem above shows four of the 24 differents integers that can be formed by using each of the digits 1,2,3 and 4 exactly once in each integer. What is the sum of these 24 integers?
a.24,000
b.26,664
c.40,440

Question 1 :

a number must be lacking in your copy. Trucks number in the lot on Saturday morning is equal to non rented trucks+rented and in trucks = 12
and we know that rented and in trucks = rented and still out trucks
we need something to assess the non rented trucks number.

Question 2 :
Answer is 66660

Among these 24 numbers each digit takes place in the same cluster only 6 times.
The base number is equal to 1*1+1*10+1*100+1*1000=1111
Answer is 6*1111*(1+2+3+4) = 60*1111

For 1 I agree with fs75008: we need the number of non-rented trucks...

For 2 I also get E. My reasoning:

Each digit of the sum of the 24 combinations is the sum of all combinations: For each value (1, 2, 3, 4) of the digit there are 6 combinations:
value of units digit = 1*6 + 2*6 + 3*6 + 4*6 = 60

For the units: 0 and 6 to be added to the tens digit
For the tens: 60+6, therefore 6 for the tens digit of the sum and 6 to be added to the hundreds digit
For the hundreds: 60+6, therefore 6 for the hundreds digit and 6 to be added to the thousands.
For the thousands: 60+6 again.

The sum: 66 6 6 0
