Numbers with 1 in the thousands postion = 6 --> 6*1000 = 6000
Numbers with 2 in the thousands postion = 6 --> 6*2000 = 12000
Numbers with 5 in the thousands postion = 6 --> 6*5000 = 30000
Numbers with 7 in the thousands postion = 6 --> 6*7000 = 42000
Numbers with 1 in the hundreds postion = 6 --> 6*100 = 600
Numbers with 2 in the hundreds postion = 6 --> 6*200 = 1200
Numbers with 5 in the hundreds postion = 6 --> 6*500 = 3000
Numbers with 7 in the hundreds postion = 6 --> 6*700 = 4200
Numbers with 1 in the tens postion = 6 --> 6*10 = 60
Numbers with 2 in the tens postion = 6 --> 6*20 = 120
Numbers with 5 in the tens postion = 6 --> 6*50 = 300
Numbers with 7 in the tens postion = 6 --> 6*70 = 420
Numbers with 1 in the ones postion = 6 --> 6*1 = 6
Numbers with 2 in the ones postion = 6 --> 6*2 = 12
Numbers with 5 in the ones postion = 6 --> 6*5 = 30
Numbers with 7 in the ones postion = 6 --> 6*7 = 42

Adding up everything = 6666 + 13332 + 33330 + 46662 = 99990

Answer should be E.

Kudos Please... If my post helped.

This is the way i solved it :

Total no. of different combos = 24, total digits 4 therefore each digit must repeat 24/4 = 6 times in each row .. So the right most row would add up to 1x6 + 2x6 + 5x6 + 7x6 = 6+12+30+42 = 90 .. Each row would add up to 90, so 90 in the first means we have 9 that carries over and we get 0 , the second time its 90+9 and 9 stays and one 9 goes to the row to the left, so the last two digits of the SUM should be 90 (E) .. We could go on and solve the exact number but since only one answer choice has the last digits as 90 we needn't go any further..

Just always add up the thousand digit of the 24 different combinations, than you can see that A B C D are always smaller than 90k.

The addition problem above shows four of the 24 different integers that can be formed by using each of the digits 1,2,5 and 7 exactly once in each integer. What is the sum of the 24 integers ?

(A) 26,996
(B) 44,406
(C) 60,444
(D) 66,660
(E) 99,990

Another possible method....

STEP 1:
Total possible 4 digit integers 4*3*2*1 = 24
Each digit (1,2,5,7) at each place(ones,tens,hundreds,thousands) repeats 4 times.
so 24/4 = 6 (Each digit will repeat 6 times in each place)

STEP 2:
Sum of individual distinct digits (1,2,5,7) = 15

STEP 3:
sum of individual distinct digits * No of times each digit got repeated at each place = 15*6 =90

STEP 4 :
As the question is based on 4 digit integers
1111 * 90 = 99990

If it was 3 digit number calc
111 * 90 = 9990

Hope this helps you...

I used this formula...

n!/n * sum of distinct digits * 111..1 = 4!/4 * 15 * 1111= 90 *1111 = 99990

digits are 1,2,5 & 7.
Total no =24

Taking unit digit sum=(1+2+5+7)*24/4=90

Taking tens digit sum=(1+2+5+7)*24/4=90

so last two digit of the sum of 24 nos will surely contains=90

here we can use formula:
(n-1)!*sum of the digits*1111
so 3!*15*1111=99990

If we write all the 4 digit numbers then each column will sum to 90.
so unit digit of sum shld be 0 Nd tens digit shld be 9.
only ans E is possible answer.
