I would like to ask to clarify the following issue for me:

How many numbers between 10 and 100 are multiples of 2, 3, 5, 6?

My approach for multiples of 2:
numbers_between_10_and_100 = 100 - 10 + 1 = 91
#_multiples = 91/2 = 45.5

And now I don't know whether I should take 45 or 46?

Thank you.

You are applying wrong formula.

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

How many multiples of 4 are there between 12 and 96, inclusive?

Last multiple of 4 IN the range is 96;
First multiple of 4 IN the range is 12;

\(\frac{96-12}{4}+1=22\).

OR: 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;

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