10^2-74 = 26
10^3-74 = 926 = one (3-2) 9's
10^4-74 = 9926 = two (4-2) 9's

10^50-74 = 9999....9926 = forty-eight (50-2) 9's

sum = 48 x 9 + 26 = 458 :roll: :roll:

Agree with the reasoning

there are 48 of a nine
there is a 2
there is a 6

so sum = 48*9 + 2+ 6 = 440

10^50 -74 = 9999..........26. There are 48 9's and 2 and 6.

Sum of digits = 9*48 +2+6 = 440
