There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:

There are total of \(\frac{198-108}{18}+1=6\) even multiple of 9 (so multiple of 18) in the range \(100\leq{n}\leq{200}\);

There are total of \(\frac{196-112}{14}+1=7\) even multiple of 7 (so multiple of 14) in the range \(100\leq{n}\leq{200}\);

As there is 1 even multiple of 7 AND 9 (overlap) in the range \(100\leq{n}\leq{200}\), which is \(2*7*9=126\) then there are total of \(6+7-1=12\) even multiples of 7 OR 9 in the range \(100\leq{n}\leq{200}\);

So there are \(51-12=39\) even numbers which are not divisible neither by 7 nor by 9.

Thanks Bunuel. It is clear but I am not quite clear on why it should be 18 or 14 because of even numbers. What happens if it is odd numbers instead of even numbers?

I'm not sure understood your question.

Stem says: "How many even integers n, ..." So even multiples of 9 are multiples of 2*9=18.

I must have been sleeping when I asked that question. Sorry. It is clear now.

Even

From 16 x 7 all the way up to 28 x 7 comes up to 7 such numbers

From 12 x 9 all the way up to 22 x 9 which comes up to 6 such numbers

From 2 x 63 - 1 such number

Total number of even numbers divisible by either 7 or 9: 7 + 6 - 1 = 12

From 100 to 200 there are 51 even numbers as the series start from 100.

Number neither divisible: 51 - 12 = 39

Odd

From 15 x 7 all the way up to 27 x 7 which count up to 7 numbers From 13 x 9 all the way up to 21 x 9 which count up to 5 numbers From 63 x 3 - 1 number

Total = 7 + 5 - 1 = 11

From 100 to 200 there are 50 odd numbers

Total number of odd numbers not divisible: 50 - 11 = 39

Doubt:

if we change the range from 100 <= n <= 200 to 200 <= n <= 300 and use the same line of reasoning - it leads to erroneous results as illustrated below...

number of even integers between 200 and 300 = (300 - 200)/2 + 1 = 51 integers;

even multiples of 7 : (294 - 203)/14 + 1 = 7.5 : clearly, this is not possible.

and works for even multiples of 9 : (297-207)/18 + 1 = 6.

Bunuel (or anyone), could you please explain.

Thanks!

The number of multiples of 14 from 200 to 300 is (294 - 210)/14 + 1 = 7.

The best way is to write all even integers in a row, eliminate all multiples of 7 and 9 and count numbers left. You can do that in 10 minutes. Good way to raise your self esteem))

I know this is a pretty old thread but I'm starting to study to GMAT and come up with an idea to solve that problema

Basically count the number of multiples for 7 and 9.

in every 70 numbers are 10 multiples of 7 -> 105, 112, 119, ... and every 30 numbers are 3 multiples of 7, so thus far we have 13 multiples of 7, from which 6 are even

in every 90 numbers are 10 multiples of 9 -> 108, 117, 126, ... and every 10 numbers are 1 multiple of 9, so thus far we have 11 multiples of 9, from which 6 are even

(look at the first multiple to determine the number of even multiples)

There are total of \(\frac{198-108}{18}+1=6\) even multiple of 9 (so multiple of 18) in the range \(100\leq{n}\leq{200}\);

There are total of \(\frac{196-112}{14}+1=7\) even multiple of 7 (so multiple of 14) in the range \(100\leq{n}\leq{200}\);

As there is 1 even multiple of 7 AND 9 (overlap) in the range \(100\leq{n}\leq{200}\), which is \(2*7*9=126\) then there are total of \(6+7-1=12\) even multiples of 7 OR 9 in the range \(100\leq{n}\leq{200}\);

So there are \(51-12=39\) even numbers which are not divisible neither by 7 nor by 9.

Answer: C.

Bunuel

here's what i did: #muliples of 9 in the set = 8 #muliples of 7 in the set = 1 #muliples of LCM(9,7)=63 in the set = 3

Here is the solution for odd numbers

Total Integers from 100 to 200 inclusive = 101 (51 even and 50 odd) Total Odd Integers from 100 to 200 = 50

Total No. that are multiple of 7 from 1-200 = 200/7 = 28 (i.e. 14 even and 14 odd) Total No. that are multiple of 7 from 1-100 = 100/7 = 14 (i.e. 7 even and 7 odd) Total No. that are ODD multiple of 7 from 100-200 = 14-7 = 7

Total No. that are multiple of 9 from 1-200 = 200/9 = 22 (i.e. 11 even and 11 odd) Total No. that are multiple of 9 from 1-100 = 100/9 = 11 (i.e. 5 even and 6 odd) Total No. that are ODD multiple of 9 from 100-200 = 11-6 = 5

Total No. that are odd multiple of 7 and 9 will be multiple of 63 and count of such numbers from 100-200 = 1

So Total No. that are odd multiple of 7 and/or 9 from 100-200 = 7+5-1 = 11

So Total No. that are NOT odd multiple of 7 and/or 9 from 100-200 = 50-11 = 39
