As a + b = 10c and c + d = 10a
ab = -11d , cd = -11b
ac = 121 and (b + d) = 9(a + c)
a2 - 10ac - 11d = 0
c2 - 10ac - 11b = 0
a2 + c2 - 20ac - 11(b + d) = 0
(a + c)2 - 22(121) - 11 × 9(a + c) = 0
(a + c) = 121 or -22 (rejected)
a + b + c + d = 1210.

Why did we reject -22?

you will not reject -22, a=-11,b=-99,c=-11,d=-99 is also a possible solution. Just substitute and check

a b c d must be distinct numbers so that (-22) is rejected in the real question of iit jee it was written that a ,b,c,d must be distinct
