the two numbers are co prime ie 12,13, the lcm of the two is 156,

simply calculate the number of multiples independently.

200/13= 15.abc
200/12= 16.abc
subtract the common multiple that is counted twice in the list.
total number of multiples of 12, 13 under 200 = 15+16-1= 30

200÷12=~16
200÷13=~15
200÷156=~1
15+16-1=30

n(aor b)=n(a)+n(b)-n(a&b)
n(a)=200/12 =~16; n(b)= 200/13= ~15; n(a&b)= 200/156=~1 (LCM 13X12=156)
n(a or b) = 16+15-1=30

Sir chetan2u is that correct approach above?

I have done tremendous calculations to reach those 15 and 16

$$\frac{(195-13)}{13}+1=15$$
$$\frac{(192-12)}{12}+1=16$$

Wasted precious time

Hi,
the sign ~ is NOT correct..

$$200/13 = 15\frac{5}{13}$$.....So, you take only the integer 15...
$$\frac{200}{12}=16\frac{8}{12}$$. Here it is ~17, but you will take 16, as the integer portion is 16 and there are 16 multiples of 12

The above lists consists of repetition of common multiples of 12 and 13, so remove them..
LCM(12,13)=156
$$\frac{200}{156}=1\frac{44}{156}$$...so 1

Quote:
$$\frac{(195-13)}{13}+1=15$$

Where you would do this..
If the set of number does NOT begin from 1...
for example - Number of multiples of 12 from 100 to 200

But here we were looking for multiples in first 200 numbers...

The number of multiples of 13 is:

(195 - 13)/13 + 1 = 15

The number of multiples of 12 is:

(192 - 12)/12 + 1 = 16

There is also one multiple of both 12 and 13, which is 12 x 13 = 156.

Thus, the number of multiples of 12 or 13 less than 200 is 15 + 16 - 1 = 30.
