For a lack of better approach I just calculated the average and multiplied it by 24.

Largest number is 5432
Smallest number is 2345
Sum is 7777.

\(\frac{7777}{2}*24=7777*12=93,324\)

Calculation is actually easier than the numbers suggest.

I'm not sure why this works. Obviously, the numbers are not an evenly spaced set. But I could see that all the differences from the mean cancel out since the same digest are used in alternating order and the digest are consecutive integers.

I'd appreciate some clarification on this one. Thanks!
