12 is the 3rd multiple of 4
96 is the 24th multiple of 4
24-3+1 = 22

22

multiples of 4 between 12 and 96 inclusive.

from 4 * 3 upto 4 *24, (3,4,...,24). Hence, 22 multiples !

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

In the original case: \frac{96-12}{4}+1=22.

If the question were: how many multiples of 5 are there between -7 and 35, not inclusive?

Last multiple of 5 IN the range is 30;
First multiple of 5 IN the range is -5;

\frac{30-(-5)}{5}+1=8.

OR:
How many multiples of 7 are there between -28 and -1, not inclusive?
Last multiple of 7 IN the range is -7;
First multiple of 7 IN the range is -21;

\frac{-7-(-21)}{7}+1=3.

Hope it helps.

I have one concern regarding this How many multiples and how many integers?

How many of the three-digit numbers are divisible by 7?

Generally we do--->999-100= 899

so 899/7=128 so we need to include both digits so we add 1 to total so it is 128+1

but the answer is only 128,How is that possible?????

As per our knowledge we know that


->If the question says both inclusive we add +1 at the last, For eg

How many of the three-digit numbers are divisible by 7?

Generally we do--->999-100= 899

so 899/7=128 so we need to include both digits so we add 1 to total so it is 128+1

->If the question says both not inclusive we add -1 at the last, For eg

How many of the three-digit numbers are divisible by 7?

Generally we do--->999-100= 899

so 899/7=128 so we need to include both digits so we add 1 to total so it is 128-1

->If the question says one inclusive we only subtract two extremes, for Eg

How many of the three-digit numbers are divisible by 7?

Generally we do--->999-100= 899

so 899/7=128, so 128 is the answer.....

Anything wrong with my concept???????Please explain i am totally confused with this...............

If anything wrong,please explain how to with these kind of problems, Like How many integers between two numbers? and How many integers between two multiples?

You forgot to add 1. It goes like this - (96-12)/4 + 1 = 22

three digit numbers divisible by 7 or multiples of 7 are from 105 to 994. Now if u do (994-105)/7 + 1 { as both are inclusive } you get 127 + 1 = 128 as the answer...


the problem in your approach is that neither 100 nor 999 are multiples of 7 and hence you need to solve (999-100)/7 with both NOT INCLUSIVE and you get the correct answer 128 :)

Just follow the formula...
96-12/4 + 1 = 22
The correct answer is B.

Why add one to the final result? I can count from 12-96 by four and come up with 22 that way, but I want to know the logic behind it.

Set of consecutive multiples of 4 is an evenly spaced set (arithmetic progression).

If the first term of arithmetic progression is a_1 and the common difference of successive members is d, then the n_{th} term of the sequence is given by:

a_ n=a_1+d(n-1) --> n=\frac{a_n-a_1}{d} + 1.

Hope it helps.

[quote="marcusaurelius"]How many multiples of 4 are there between 12 and 96, inclusive?

A. 21
B. 22
C. 23
D. 24
E. 25


12,16....96

applying AP,
an=a+(n-1)d
96=12+(n-1)4
by solving this equation,the result is

n = 22
thats is the answer

We can use AP fourmula here, A+(n-1)D to find the nth term
12+(n-1)4=96
4n-4=84

In the original case: \frac{96-12}{4}+1=22.

If the question were: how many multiples of 5 are there between -7 and 35, not inclusive?

Last multiple of 5 IN the range is 30;
First multiple of 5 IN the range is -5;

\frac{30-(-5)}{5}+1=8.

OR:
How many multiples of 7 are there between -28 and -1, not inclusive?
Last multiple of 7 IN the range is -7;
First multiple of 7 IN the range is -21;

\frac{-7-(-21)}{7}+1=3.

Hope it helps.


Hi Bunuel,

can i use this formula for not inclusive? But when i use this formula I got different result.
Last multiple of 7 - First Multiple of 7/ 7 - 1

There are examples with "not inclusive" cases above. Please be more specific.

Yes. Again, examples in my post above have not inclusive ranges!
