Series in a series

Following series is given upto n terms:

\(1,12,123,1234,12345,123456,1234567,...123456789,1234567890...\)

It's sum up to n terms is defined by the formula:

\(\frac{a(10^{n}-1)-b(n)-c(n)(n+1)}{d}\)

( a,b,c,d are integer constants . )

What is a+b+2c+d?

Hint:

Try splitting each term into a series. \((12-1)=?\) And \((1234-123)=?\).

Try finding formula upto n terms by summation (then deduce to the above equation) and then compare coefficients to the above equation and just sum to give the answer.
