What is the sum of the integers in the table above?

(A) 28
(B) 112
(C) 336
(D) 448
(E) 784


I think the best way to solve this type of problems is to try to cancel out some of the numbers before operating since you have positives and negatives.
I quickly realized that lines 1,3 and 4 could cancel out. Then by combining lines 5,6 and 7 you get the same numbers in line 6 but with different signs. So you can actually then combine that one with line 2 and just get a series of multiples by 4 starting with 4+8+12....+28.

So 7 terms average 16 = 112

It seems more complicated than it really is. I guess one could find other patterns and even cancel something else out, but you should not overthink it.
At least cancel 2/3 lines and then you can start adding/subtracting to get another evenly spaced set of numbers.

Hope it helps

How come lines 1,3 & 4 be cancel out? Please help..lot of confusion for this

Took a slighly different approach!

If u observe carefully, in each column--
(sum of 7th number and the 3rd number) - (sum of 6th number and 4th number ) = 0

This pattern is same for all the columns. Now all u have to do is add only the units digit of the remaining numbers and u have the answer!

IMO fluke gave the best approach, though i could not come up with it immediately when i saw the question!
