Filter number combinations that don't add to 11 - 348 entries

Append the sum of each line to its end, alongside an equals sign, and remove any that do not sum to 11. The ordering of lines should stay the same. Note that the combinations are semi-arbitrary and not all 4-number combinations are present in the file.
