How many of the three-digit numbers are divisible by 7?

105
106
127
128
142

Explanation Given:
-----------------------
Approach One: Divide all of the three-digit numbers $$999 - 100 + 1 = 900$$ (Don't forget to add 1 to get the number of all the 3-digit numbers) by 7, which is 128.57, and then round it off to 128.
-----------------------
My question: When you round 128.57 shouldn't it result in 129? In this case in the answer choices there was no 129, but what if on the D-Day there is 129? What would you do then?

You have a valid question, i dont know.

But i would solve it this way -
1st 3 digit # divisible by 7 is 105

and last is 994

now 994 = 105+(n-1)7
==> n =128 which is choice D.

You cannot usee 999 and 100, because those are not multiples of 7. u have to choose the smallest 3 digit multiple of 7 and highest 3-digit multiple;

105..............................994

(994-105)/7 +1
=127+1= 128

What I posted was actually from the explanation given on the test, not what I used.
