The explanation says

"To count the number of integers from 1 to $$N$$ (inclusive) that are divisible by $$x$$ , find the value of $$\frac{N}{x}$$ "

But MGMAT says

(Last-First)/Increment + 1.

How come these two are different?

Also in the explanation, the 1000/11 figure is rounded down, even though the number is 90.9. Why not round it up?

Let's try to understand the logic behind the formula by taking a smaller example. How many nos are there between 1 to9 that are divisible by 2 ?
Going over the multiples of 2 - 2,4,6,8 , i.e. 4
9/2 = 4.5 ...rounds down to 4.
If we round it up, we are including 10 as well. That is why it is important to round down for these examples.

As for the formulae that you have listed, I would use the first formula, the second formula seems to be taken out of context.
