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.. _________________

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 ?

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...

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. _________________
