Official Solution:

How many positive integers less than 200 are there such that they are multiples of 13 or multiples of 12 but not both?

A. 28
B. 29
C. 30
D. 31
E. 32


# 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

A humble suggestions. :-)

30 would be a good trap answer here. I got 30 and then realised I'll have to reduce 1 twice. Had 30 been there, I'd got this one wrong.

Bunuel, wouldn't it be easier to simply divide 200 separately by both 13 and 12 and subtract 1 each from 15 and 16 respectively? Is this approach correct?

Hi
Is there a way we can apply Set theory here using the formula n(AUB)=n(A)+n(B)-n(AUB)+none?
IMHO, not using the Set theory will easily make you err in such questions.

Exactly ...
I too was getting 30 again and again and then realised the same...
Also if the question would have been either 13 or 12 then 30 is perfect.

I think this is a poor-quality question. If 156 is counted twice , why are we deducting it twice instead of once?

I think there is \frac{195 - 0}{13 + 1 = 16} multiples of 13, since 0 i also a multiple of this number and should be included accordingly.

Same occurs to multiples of 12.

Purelly a "set property".

Since they overlap one another, you must take that out to do not double count them.

Consider to review sets properties from Manhattan or from Gmat Club, it will help you to clarify this concept.

By the way, i shared my reasoning right above.

Both 15, which is # of multiples of 13 in the given range, as well as 16, which is # of multiples of 12 in the given range, contain 1 number (156), which is a multiples of both 13 and 12.
