Merging similar topics. Formulas for such kind of problems (just in case): 1. Sum of all the numbers which can be formed by using the \(n\) digits without repetition is: \((n1)!*(sum \ of \ the \ digits)*(111... \ n \ times)\). 2. Sum of all the numbers which can be formed by using the \(n\) digits ( repetition being allowed) is: \(n^{n1}*(sum \ of \ the \ digits)*(111... \ n \ times)\).

A.24,000 B.26,664 C.40,440 D.60,000 E.66,660 Using the symmetry in the numbers involved (All formed using all possible combinations of 1,2,3,4), and we know there are 24 of them. We know there will be 6 each with the units digits as 1, as 2, as 3 and as 4. And the same holds true of the tens, hundreds and thousands digit. The sum is therefore = (1 + 10 + 100 + 1000) * (1*6 +2*6 +3*6 +4*6) = 1111 * 6 * 10 = 66660 Answer : e

1,2,3,4 can be arranged in 4! = 24 ways
The units place of all the integers will have six 1's, six 2's, six 3's and six 4's Likewise, The tens place of all the integers will have six 1's, six 2's, six 3's and six 4's The hundreds place of all the integers will have six 1's, six 2's, six 3's and six 4's The thousands place of all the integers will have six 1's, six 2's, six 3's and six 4's
Addition always start from right(UNITS) to left(THOUSANDS);
Units place addition; 6(1+2+3+4) = 60. Unit place of the result: 0 carried over to tens place: 6
Tens place addition; 6(1+2+3+4) = 60 + 6(Carried over from Units place) = 66 Tens place of the result: 6 carried over to hunderes place: 6
Hundreds place addition; 6(1+2+3+4) = 60 + 6(Carried over from tens place) = 66 Hundreds place of the result: 6 carried over to thousands place: 6
Thousands place addition; 6(1+2+3+4) = 60 + 6(Carried over from hundreds place) = 66 Thousands place of the result: 6 carried over to ten thousands place: 6
Ten thousands place of the result: 0+6(Carried over from thousands place) = 6
Result: 66660
Ans: "E"

This can be solved much easier by realizing that, since the number of four term permutations is 4!, and that summing the a sequence to its reverse gives
1234 +4321 = 5555
1243 +3421 = 5555
we may see that there are 4!/2 pairings we can make, giving us
5555(12) = 66660

The logic is no different from 'no repetition allowed' question. The only thing different is the number of numbers you can make. How many numbers can you make using the four digits 1, 2, 3 and 4 if repetition is allowed? You can make 4*4*4*4 = 256 numbers (there are 4 options for each digit) 1111 1112 1121 ... and so on till 4444 By symmetry, each digit will appear equally in each place i.e. in unit's place, of the 256 numbers, 64 will have 1, 64 will have 2, 64 will have 3 and 64 will have 4. Same for 10s, 100s and 1000s place. Sum = 1000*(64*1 + 64*2 + 64*3 + 64*4) + 100*(64*1 + 64*2 + 64*3 + 64*4) + 10*(64*1 + 64*2 + 64*3 + 64*4) + 1*(64*1 + 64*2 + 64*3 + 64*4) = (1000 + 100 + 10 + 1)(64*1 + 64*2 + 64*3 + 64*4) = 1111*64*10 = 711040 or use the formula given by Bunuel above: Sum of all the numbers which can be formed by using the digits (repetition being allowed) is:\(n^{n1}\)*Sum of digits*(111...n times) =\(4^3*(1+2+3+4)*(1111) = 711040\) (Same calculation as above)

For those who could not memorize the formular, you can guess the answer in 30 secs: Since we have 24 numbers, we will have 6 of 1 thousand something, 6 of 2 thousand something, 6 of 3 thousand something, and 6 of 4 thousand something So, 6x1(thousand something) = 6 (thousand something) 6x2(thousand something) = 12 (thousand something) 6x3(thousand something) = 18 (thousand something) 6x4(thousand something) = 24 (thousand something) Add them all 6+12 +18 + 24 = 60 (thousand something) > E

We have 6 numbers with 1XXX, 6 with 2XXX 6 with 3XXX and 6 with 4XXX.
6*1000+6*2000+6*3000+6*4000= 60000. Hence, the solution must be higher than 60000. Only E fits.

A. 24,000 B. 26,664 C. 40,440 D. 60,000 E. 66,660 Each digit will come at the respective place i.e units,tens, hundreds , thousands So calculate sum of each digit for the all the places for 4=4000+400+40+4 3=3000+300+30+3 2=2000+200+20+2 1=1000+100+10+1 Now calculate the sum of the sums of these digits =11110 Now we know that each digit is used 6 times therefore we have to multiply with 6 6*11110=66660 Hence E is our answer .

Sum of terms = Average * Number of terms holds for all sets of numbers Average = (First term + Last term)/2 holds for an Arithmetic Progression only Yes, you are right. But what was the arithmetic progression in this question? And do such types of questions always have arithmetic progression so that I can use the abovementioned formula for such questions? There isn't and hence, I haven't used this formula. Note that Avg concept will not work when the digits are say 1, 2, 4, 6. It works in this case because of the symmetry of the digits 1, 2, 3 and 4.

each term is repeating 6 times..(total 24/4=4) now at unit...each term will repeat 6 times... (1x6+ 2x6 + 3x6 + 4x6 = 60) , so unit digit is "0" and 6 remaining.
repeating same.....total of 24 ten digit will be 60 + 6 from total of unit ,so ten digit will be 6.
only E has 60 as last two digits.

A slightly different approach:
We are looking to sum a four digit integer where each digit is not equal to zero. Therefore, taking each digit's place holder, we have a template of (1000 + 100 + 10 + 1) or (1,111).
We know that this 1,111 is repeated 24 times; therefore (1111 * 24) = 26,664.
We are unsure which digit of (1,2,3,4) goes where for any specific number within the set of 24 possibilities, but we know that the average number of (1,2,3,4) is 2.5
26,664 * 2.5 = 66,660
