It should be mentioned whether 16 and 260 are inclusive.

\(# \ of \ multiples \ of \ x \ in \ the \ range = \frac{Last \ multiple \ of \ x \ in \ the \ range \ - \ First \ multiple \ of \ x \ in \ the \ range}{x}+1\) (check here: how-many-multiples-of-4-are-there-between-12-and-94862.html).

If 16 and 260 are inclusive, then the answer is (260-16)/4+1=62.
If 16 and 260 are NOT inclusive, then the answer is (256-20)/4+1=60.

Since OA is E, then we have NOT inclusive case.

yep, it's 60, did a different way:
16 is the 4th multiple
260 is the 65th multiple.
since we need to find the multiples between, without the 4th and 65th multiple, we need to find how many multiples are between 5th multiple and 64th multiple inclusive:
64-5+1=60.

If you're not good at remembering formulas, then another option is to look for a pattern.
So, we want to know how many terms are in the sequence 20, 24, 28, . . .. 252, 256

Notice that:
20 = 4(5)
24 = 4(6)
28 = 4(7)
32 = 4(8)
.
.
.
252 = 4(63)
256 = 4(64)

So, the number of terms in the sequence 20, 24, 28, . . .. 252, 256 is equal to the number of integers from 5 to 64 inclusive.

Well we have a formula (an easy formula) for finding this. We know that the number of integers from x to y inclusive is equal to y-x+1

So, the number of integers from 5 to 64 inclusive is equal to 64-5+1 = 60

Answer: E

It's useful for these types of questions to figure out what multiple of 4 is already being represented by 16 and 260

16/4 =4
260/4 = 65

Thus we are looking for multiples of 4 from 5 to 64 --> 64-5+1=60

S = { 16, 20 , 24 ........260}

Or, S = 4{4,5...........64,65}

So, THe number of multiples of 4 is 65 - 4 + 1 = 60 , Answer must be (E)
