In general, for any  p-digit number with digits from 1 to p;

The sum of all p -digit numbers consisting of one each of the digits 1 through p<o:p></o:p>

= (1+2+-------+p)*1111.11(p times)*(p-1)!<o:p></o:p>

= *(p+1)*p*((p-1)!)*(10^p-1)/9<o:p></o:p>

 = *(p+1)! *(10^p - 1)/9.<o:p></o:p>

 = (p+1)! *(10^p - 1)/18.<o:p></o:p>
