How?

Lets see.

Number of numbers between 1 and 1000 divisible by 11 is 90. Similarly there are 28 numbers divisible by 35. Now remember to consider numbers that are divisible by both 11 and 35.There are 2 such numbers. So total is 1000 - 90 - 28 + 2 = 884

how do you figure out in a very timely fashion the numbers that are both divisible by 11 and 35??

The best and easiest way to figure out the numbers divisible by 11 and 35 is to split it into its prime factors

Prime Factors of 11 = 11
Prime Factors of 35 = 7 and 5

Since there is no overlap, the Least Common Multiple is 11 *35 = 385

Now there are 2 such multiples of 385 below 1000 (i.e 385 and 770)

The rest of the reasoning is the same as that provided earlier
