positive integers less than 10,000 that are divisible by 3 = $$\frac{9999}{3}=3333$$
positive integers less than 10,000 that are divisible by 5 = $$\frac{9995}{5}=1999$$

The total 3333+1999, that is 5332, has repetitions in the form of common multiple of 3 and 5..
positive integers less than 10,000 that are divisible by LCM(3,5) or 15 = $$\frac{9990}{15}=666$$

Total = $$5332-666=4666$$

integer <10,000 divisible by 3 ; 10,000/3 ; 3333
integer <10,000 divisible by 5; 1999
LCM ; 15 ; integer <10,000 divisible by 15 ; 666
so total integers less than 10,000 are divisible by 3 or 5 = 3333+1999 - 666 ; 4666
IMO A

Asked: How many of the positive integers less than 10,000 are divisible by 3 or 5?

Numbers divisible by 3 = {3,6,....9999} = 3333
Numbers divisible by 5 = {5,10,,,,9995} = 1999
Numbers divisible by 3*5 = 15 = {15,30,.....9990} = 666

Number of the positive integers less than 10,000 are divisible by 3 or 5 = 3333 + 1999 - 666 = 4666

IMO A
