Let me to know the calculation process.
Ans.101

Hi, and welcome to Gmat Club! Below is a solution for your problem:

$$# \ of \ multiples \ of \ x \ in \ the \ range = \frac{Last \ multiple \ of \ x \ in \ the \ range \ - \ First \ multiple \ of \ x \ in \ the \ range}{x}+1$$.

For our original question we would have: $$\frac{2,000-1,000}{10}+1=101$$.

Check this: totally-basic-94862.html?hilit=last%20first%20range%20multiple

Hope it helps.

My attempt:

1000 - 1100 -- 11
1110 - 1200 -- 10
1210 - 1300 -- 10

1X10 - 1(X+1)00 -- 10

X - 3, 4, 5, 6 ,7 ,8, 9.

Sum them up - 101.

In general the formula for any series where "d" is the increment or difference between two terms to find the nth term =
An= A1+ (n-1)d
Now we know An =2000
A1=1000
d=10
2000=1000+(n-1)10
=101

OR
Use this
( last -first )/ increment + 1

As already discussed, the method is [(Last-First)/Increment ]+1

If you are refering to mgmat by any chance, this is discussed in Chap4 of Number properties
