4*4*4 = 64 numbers

6+7+8+9 = 30

16*30 = 480 = sum of units digit of the 64 numbers (same for tens and hundreds digits)

total sum = 480*(1+10+100) = 53280.

(6+7+8+9)*3! = 30*6=180 for sum for 1 line
so sum is 19980

here we go,
The last digits can be 6,7,8, or 9
so if it is 9, for example, there are 2 more digits before it that need to be chosen from 6,7, and 8 (order matters here) so 3!/1! permutations = 3!=6

so there will be 6 numbers with 9 in the end, 6 numbers with 8, etc
total 6x4 = 24 numbers

so sum of last digits will be (6+7+8+9)*3!

do the same the middle and the first digits

and you get the number

Dan did the same thing basically but he accounted for repeats, so in his case 999 is possible but it isn't possible in my solution
