Let $\mathcal{A}$ represent the sum of the numbers of the questions with answer $A;$ $\mathcal{B}$ for the sum of the numbers questions with answer $B;$ and so on, up to $\mathcal{E}$.

Find $\mathcal{A}+2\mathcal{B}+3\mathcal{C}+4\mathcal{D}+5\mathcal{E}.$

If questions 3, 13, 15, and 16 have answer $Z,$ then $\mathcal{Z}=3+13+15+16=47$
