Last Multiple in the range : 990 (33*30)
No. of multiple in the range : (304) + 1 = 27.
The best answer is B.

To determine the above, we can apply the following rule: the number of integers from x to y inclusive equals y  x + 1So, the number of integers from 4 to 30 inclusive = 30  4 + 1 = 27 Answer: B Cheers, Brent

Thus, there are 27 multiples of 33 between 101 and 1000.

Regards, fskilnik. P.S.: that´s EXACTLY Selim´s solution, only a bit more "structured". Congrats, Selim!!

=> Consider the arithmetic sequence \(132, 165, …, 990\) of multiples of \(33\). The number of terms in this sequence is \(\frac{(990132)}{33} + 1 =\frac{858}{33} + 1 = 26 + 1 = 27.\) Therefore, the answer is B. Answer: B
