The total number of numbers formed with the digits 2,3,4,5 taken all at a time = 4! = 24
to find the sum of these 24 numbers we will find sum of digits at unit, ten, hundred and thousand places in all these numbers
consider the digits in the unit's places in all these numbers
Each of the digit will occur 3! =6 times in the unit place
So total for the digits in unit's place in all the numbers = (2 + 3 + 4 +5 ) * 6
so sum of all numbers = (2 + 3 + 4 + 5) * 3! * ( 10^0 + 10^1 + 10^2 + 10^3))
so (( 2 + 3 + 4 + 5) * 3! * (10^41)/9
= (2 + 3 + 4 + 5) * 3! * (1111)Direct Formula :
Sum numbers formed by n non zero digits = (sum of digits) * (n1!) * (11111....n times)Total number of numbers in case of repetition = 4 * 4 * 4 * 4 = 4^4
So each digit will occur at 4^4/4=4^3 =64 times
so (sum of digits)) * 64 * (1111))
so formula = (sum of digits) * n^n * (1111)

abc = 540
540 = 2^2 * 3^3 * 5^1
a^x * b^y * c^z = 2^2 * 3^3 * 5^1
a will some number which will contain 2 ,3 and 5
same for b
and same for
and there will be some power of 2 ,3 and 5 in them whatever will be the power 0,1,2 or 3
but sum of the power of 2 will be 2 , sum of the power of 3 will be 3 and sum of the power of 5 will be 1
so x + y + z = 2 (where x,y,z could vary from 0 to2)
so number of ways=2+31c31=4c2
x+y+z=3
3+31c31=5c2
x+y+z=1
so 1+31c31=3c2
so total number of positive solutions will be
=4c2 * 5c2 * 3c2=180
so ordered number of positive solutions will be 180now if we want total number of integral solutions then we will find negative solutions also
for negative out of a,b,c ,2 numbers will be negative
so choose 2 numbers out of those 3 numbers
so 3c2 * positive solutions
so 3c2 * 180
so total ordered solutions =180 + 3c2 * 180

648=2^3 * 3^4
so x+y+z+k=3 so 6c3=20
and x+y+z+k=4 =7c3=35
so total positive =700
now cases can be
all positive=700
2 positive 2 negative =4c2 * 700
or all negative =700
so 700+700+6 * 700
4200+1400=5600
a^x * b^y * c^z * d^k = 2^3 * 3^4
now a ,b,c,d all will contain 0,1,2,or 3 power of 2 and sum of all those will be equal to 3
so x+y+z+k=3
and same for 3
so x+y+z+k=4

a + b + c = 17
19C2 = 171
when two are same :
2a + c = 17
total 9 solutions
(171  3 * 9)/ 3! + 9 = 33

210= 2 * 3 * 5 * 7
So positive = 3 * 3 * 3 * 3 = 3^4
Now each of three can be either positive or negative
So 2 * 2 * 2 * 3^4 = 8 * 3^4
Unordered: 81  3 / 6 + 1 = 14

a * b * c = 7^2 * 11^2 * 13^2
x+y+z=2=4c2=6
x+y+z=2=4c2=6
x+y+z=2=4c2=6
so 6^3+3 * 6^3
4 * 6^3=864
now unordered
2 same
a^2 * b=1^2 * x
7^2 * x
11^2 * x
13^2 * x
(7 * 11)^2 * x
(7 * 13)^2 * x
(11 * 13)^2 * x
(7 * 11 * 13)^2
same 8 for negative so 16
so 86416 * 3/6 +16

1000=2^3 * 5^3
so x+y+z=3
so 5c2=10
and x+y+z=3
so 10
so 10 * 10=100
and negative 3 * 100=300
so total =400now unordered
same a^2 * b=2^3 * 5^3
1^2 * x
2^2 * x
5^2 * x
10^2 * x
(1)^2 * x
(2)^2 * x
(5)^2 * x
(10)^2 * x
so total y=8
but one case will be all same here so y=7
and z=1
so 6x + 3 * 7 + 1=400
so x=40022/6
so unordered=x+y+z

general term of this equation is = 10!/(r1! * r2! * r3!) * (2x)^r1 * (y)^r2 * (4z)^r3
= 10!/(r1! * r2! * r3!) * (2)^r1 * (4)^r3 * x^r1 * y^r2 * z^r3
now we have to find x^3 * y^4 * z^3 so r1=3 ,r2=4 and r3=3
put tvalue of r1, r2, r3 here 10!/(r1! * r2! * r3!) * (2)^r1 * (4)^r3 * x^r1 * y^r2 * z^r3
so coefficient is 10!/(3! * 4! * 3!) * (2)^3 * (4)^3

general term = 15!/(r1! * r2! * r3! * r4!) * x^r1 * y^r2 * z^r3 * k^r4
so basically we have to maximize 15!/(r1! * r2! * r3! * r4!) term
so we have to minimize (r1! * r2! * r3! * r4!) so for this symmetry is useful so put values as close as possible here
r1 = r2 = r3 = 4 and r4 = 3
so largest coefficient is 15!/(3! * (4!)^3)

general term = 8!/r1! * r2! * r3! * (1)^r1 * (x^2)^r2 * (x^3)^r3
= 8!/r1! * r2! * r3! * x^(2r1) * (1)^r3 * (x)^3r3
= 8!/r1! * r2! * r3! * (1)^r3 * x^(2r2+3r3)
now we have to find coefficient of x^6 here (for any coefficient same procedure )
so r1 + r2 + r3 = 8
2r2 + 3r3 = 6
find r1, r2 and r3 here
let r3=0 so r2=3 so r1=2 and let r3=2,so r2=0 so r1=6 (r1,r2,r3 should be integer because term can't be negative)
now coefficient will be 8!/r1! * r2! * r3! *(1)^r3
put both values of r1,r2 and r3 and add
so 8!/5! * 3!+8!/2! * 6!=84

@hemant_malhotra as the no. of real roots is asked so it will always be 3
