# of multiples of 13 in the given range \(\frac{(\text{last-first})}{\text{multiple}}+1=\frac{195-13}{13}+1=15\);

# of multiples of 12 in the given range \(\frac{(\text{last-first})}{\text{multiple}}+1=\frac{192-12}{12}+1=16\);

# of multiples of both 13 and 12 is 1: \(13*12=156\). Notice that 156 is counted both in 15 and 16;

So, # of multiples of 13 or 12 but not both in the given range is \((15-1)+(16-1)=29\).

Answer: B.

B. 29

for 13: 13...195=13*15 ==> N13=13*15-13/13 +1 = 15
for 12: 12...192=12*16 ==> N13=12*16-12/12 +1 = 16

but there is one integer 13*12. so

N=(15-1)+(16-1)=29

very nice.

i did it the most ungraceful way possible.

200 / 12 = 16.xxxx
200 / 13 = 15.xxx

16 + 15 = 31

12 & 13 have one LCM under 200. didnt even both to calculate it since i know 12*12 =144.

subtract 2 since it shows up in both sets of multiples

31 - 2 = 29

1)Multiples of 12: (192-12)/12+1=16 2)Multiples of 13: (192-13)/13+1=16 3)Multiple of both 12 and 13 - 2*2*3*13=156 only 1 4)16-1+15-1=29

There is no other way around this question. Use the formula and calculate carefully. The last step is quite easy, look at the unit number only.
