# div by 7 = 1000/7 = 142.8 = 142
# div by 3 = 1000/3 = 333.3 = 333
# div by both 7 and 3 = 1000/21 = 47
# div by both 7 and 5 = 1000/35 = 28
# div by 5 and 3 = 1000/15 = 66
# div by 3,5,7 = 1000/105 = 9

so for our answer
we add div by 7 and div by 3, thereafter subtract those div by both 7 and 3 as they have been added twice in the process..
Now they cannot contain div by 5, so we subtract div by both 7 and 5 and thereafter div by both 3 and 5..
But in the process some numbers are eliminated twice so we add multiple of all three -3,5, and 7.
ans 142+333-47-28-66+9=343..

I am getting 390 as the answer.
333+142- (9+57+19) =390
333 = multiples of 3
142 = multiples of 7
9= multiples of 3,7,5
57 = multiples of 3,5 but not 7
19 = multiples of 5,7 but not 3

hi..

when you ADD div by 3 and div by 7, it duplicates few numbers - COMMON multiple of 3 and 7 and these require to be SUBTRACTED from total, which you have missed out..
