"Sum of all 4 digit positive numbers with non zero digit" is a difficult problem having had by the students who study math to get prepared for competitive exams.

For some students, getting answer for the questions like "Find the sum of all 4 digit positive numbers with non zero digit" is never being easy and always it is a challenging one.

Once we know the concept and method of solving, solving the above problem will not be a challenging one.

In total, there are nine different positive digits. They are

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Since we are going to form four digit numbers, let us have four blanks.

** ____ ____ ____ ____**

The first blank (thousand's place) has 9 options.(1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

If one of the nine digits is filled in the first blank, eight digits will be remaining.

So, the second place has eight options options and it can be filled by one of the eight digits.

After having filled the second blank, seven digits will be remaining.

So, the third place has seven options and it can be filled by one of the seven digits.

After having filled the third blank, six digits will be remaining.

So, the fourth blank has six options and it can be filled by one of the six digits.

The above explained stuff can be written as

** 9x8x7x6 = 3024**

**Therefore, the number of four digit positive numbers numbers formed using (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) is 3024.**

**Is it possible to write all the 3024 numbers and find sum of them in exam ?**

Definitely, the answer for the above question is **"no".**

**Then, is there any shortcut?**

**Yes.** To know the shortcut, come to know the value of **"K"** using the formula given below.

Here, students may have question.

That is, what do we do with "K" to find sum of all 4 digit positive numbers with non zero digit ?

Answer is given below.

**What does "K" do if one of the digits is "zero"?**

**Answer : **

1. Each one of the non-zero digits will come "K" times at the first place (thousand's place, if it is four digit number).

2. The digit "0" will come "K" times at the second place. The remaining blanks at the second place will be shared equally by the non-zero digits.

3. The same process which is explained above for the second
place will be applied for the third place and fourth place.

**
What does "K" do if none of the digits is "zero"?**

**Answer : **

Each one of the non-zero digits will come "K" times at the first
place, second place, third place and fourth place.

In our problem, we have

K = 3024/9

** K = 336 **

In our problem we get K = 336.

In total of nine different positive digits, none of the digits is "0".

So, each one of the nine different digits (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) will come at the thousand's place,hundred's place,ten's place and unit's place **336**** ( = K )** times in the 3024 numbers formed using the nine different digits mentioned above.

To find sum of all 4 digit positive numbers with non zero digit, we have to find the sum of all numbers at first, second, third and fourth places.

Let us find the sum of numbers at the first place (thousand's place).

In the 3024 numbers formed, we have each one of the digits (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) 336 times at the first place, second place, third place and fourth place.

**Sum of the numbers at the first place (1000's place) **

= 336(1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9) = 336x45 = 15120

**Sum of the numbers at the second place (100's place) **

= 336(1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9) = 336x45 = 15120

**Sum of the numbers at the third place (10's place) **

= 336(1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9) = 336x45 = 15120

**Sum of the numbers at the fourth place (1's place) **

= 336(1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9) = 336x45 = 15120

**Explanation for the above calculation: **

15120 is the sum of numbers at thousand's place. So 15120 is multiplied 1000.

15120 is the sum of numbers at hundred's place. So 15120 is multiplied 100.

15120 is the sum of numbers at ten's place. So 15120 is multiplied 10.

15120 is the sum of numbers at unit's place. So 15120 is multiplied 1.

The method explained above is not only applicable to find the sum of all 4 digit positive numbers with non zero digit. This same method can be applied to find sum of all 4 digit numbers formed using any four digits in which none of the digits is zero.

When students have the questions like "Find the sum of all 4 digit positive numbers with non zero digit", in competitive exams, they are stumbling a lot to solve. If we know the way of solving, getting answer for the questions like "Find the sum of all 4 digit positive numbers with non zero digit" is not a difficult task.

We hope, after having seen the methods and steps explained above, students will not find it difficult to answer the questions like "sum of all 4-digit positive numbers with non zero digit".
