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
