there are 50 odd nos less than 100 which are not multiples of 2.
within these 50 numbers we simply need to remove 50 odd multiples of 3 i.e 3, 9 ,15.......,99. This is an AP series with a=3 d=6 & Tn = 99
Therefore no of odd multiples of 3 less than 100 are: 99 = 3+(n-1)6 = 17
So numbers neither multiple of 2 nor 3 are = 50-17 = 33

I have an intuitive way of seeing it that seems right..

1,2,3. 2 and 3 are multiples of 2 and 3

4,5,6. 4 and 6 are multiples of 2 and 3.

7,8,9. 8 and 9 are multiples of 2 and 3.

I didn't extrapolate but it seems to be a pattern here. 1/3 of such a series will not be multiples - Hence 99/3 = 33. Does it make sense?

We can use the following equation:

Number of integers from 1 to 99 inclusive = number of integers that are multiples of 2 or 3 + number of integers that are neither multiples of 2 nor 3

Furthermore:

Number of integers that are multiples of 2 or 3 = number of multiples of 2 + number of multiples of 3 - number of multiples of 2 and 3

Notice that the number of multiples of 2 and 3 is also the number of multiples of 6.

Let’s determine the number of multiples of 2 from 1 to 99 inclusive using the following equation:

(largest multiple of 2 in the set - smallest multiple of 2 in the set)/2 + 1

(98 - 2)/2 + 1 = 49

Now we can determine the number of multiples of 3 from 1 to 99 inclusive using the same concept:

(99 - 3)/3 + 1 = 33

Finally, let’s determine the number of multiples of 6, since some multiples of 2 are also multiples of 3; we must subtract those out so they are not double-counted.

(96 - 6)/6 + 1 = 16

Thus, there are 49 + 33 - 16 = 66 multiples of 2 or 3 from 1 to 99, inclusive. Therefore, there are 99 - 66 = 33 multiples from 1 to 99 inclusive that are not multiples of 2 or 3.

Answer: D

Set comprises the integers 1-99 inclusive. Number of items in set=99.

Number of integers that are a multiple of 2: [(98-2)/2)]+1=49
Number of integers that are a multiple of 3: [(99-3)/2)]+1=33. Of these, 16 are even and are therefore counted in the number of multiples of 20 (49). So there are 17 additional integers to add that are multiples of 3 but not multiples of 2.

99-(49+17)=99-66=33

Agree?

how i approached this problem -
we have to eliminate all the multiples of 2 & 3...
Therefore, within 100 it's all about the prime numbers and 1.

There are 25 prime numbers -

2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97

Out of which 2 & 3 are not included so - 23.
Also, there is 1. So 24.

Next the multiples of the prime numbers - 5*5, 5*7, 5*11, 5*13, 5*17, 5*19, 7*7, 7*11, 7*13

So altogether there are 33 such numbers.

(Note: It may take a bit long but it's another method to think about.)

Last numer less than 100 divisible by 2 is 98
Then 98/2 = 49....You need to add 1 to count number 98..so 49+1=50

Last number less than 100 divisible by 3 is 99
Then 99/3= 33.... You need to add 1 to count number 99..so 33+1=34

We need to fin multiples of 6
Last number less than 100 divisible by 6 is 96
Then 96/6= 16.... You need to add 1 to count number 96..so 16+1=17...

Remove duplicity with Venn diagrams A+B -AB ....50+34-17= 67 numbers.
100-67 = 33

Hence D!
