BOOKMARKED
How many positive integers less than 200 are there such that they are multiples of 13 or multiples of 12 but not both?
28
29
31
32
33

The official explanation says:
Multiples of 13: 13, 26, 39, ..., 195. 15 numbers.

Multiples of 12: 12, 24, 36, ..., 192. 16 numbers.

Multiples of both 12 and 13: 156. 1 number but it is counted twice.

The answer is 15+16-2 = 29

What is a fast approach for such type of questions? I cannot imagine that one shall sit n count all 16 multiples of 200 and then 15 multiples of 13!

The direct way...divide 200/13= 15.x
divide 200/12= 16.x

now 13*12 = 156 - we have to exclude it twice

so 15 +16 -2
