What is the number of integers from 1 to 1000 (inclusive) that are not divisible by 11 nor by 35? * 884 * 890 * 892 * 910 * 945  We can go this way: Calculate the no. of terms from 1 to 1000 (inclusive) that are divisible by 11 or 35 or both. 1.) Total no. of terms divisible by 11 are 90. We can calculate this by finding the first and last terms, which are 11 & 990 respectively. Then we will find the total no. of terms by using equation Last Term = a + (n1)d where a=11, d=11, Last Term=990. So, n=90 2.) Similarly, total no. of terms divisible by 35 are 28. Find it using the above method. 3.) To find terms divisible by both 11 & 35, find the first term. Since both have no common factors except 1, just multiply 11 & 35 to get the first common term i.e., 385. Next term is 770. So, in total, there are 2 common terms for 11 & 35.  Hence, the total no. of terms from 1 to 1000 (inclusive) that are divisible by 11 or 35 or both = 90 + 28  2 = 116 So, the correct answer = 1000  116 = 884, which will give us the total no. of terms that are divisible neither by 11 nor 35. So, I'll go for first option, i.e., 884Though the explanation looks a bit lengthy, it'll not take much time to solve. HTH

* 884 * 890 * 892 * 910 * 945 1000/11 = 90.xx divisible 11 = 90 1000/35 = 28.x Divisible by 35 = 28 We need to exclude 11*35 and 2*11*35 numbers are counted twice. Anser = 1000(90+282) =1000116=884

Numbers Divisible by 11: (1000/11) + (1000/(11^2)) = 90+8 = 98 Numbers Divisible by 35: 1000/35 = 20 Numbers Divisible by 385 (11*35): 1000/385 = 2
Hence, Numbers Divisible by both 11 and 35 = 98+202 = 116 Therefore, Numbers Not Divisible = 1000116= 884
IMO A.

1000/11 = 90 ( no of integers divisible by 11 and less than 1000)
1000/35 = 28 ( no of integers divisible by 11 and less than 35)
No of Common factors = 1 , 11*35 =2
answer =1000( 90+282 ) = 884

So total multiples of 35 in 1000 = Quotient of 1000/35 = 28 For 11, total multiples = 1000/11 = 90 But there are common multiples as 385,770 which should be counted only once Because  35 and 11 LCM = 7 * 5 * 11 = 35 * 11 = 185 so 385 * 2 = 770 So total = 90 + 28  2 = 90 + 26 = 116 Hence not divisible = 1000  116 = 884 Answer  A

no.s div by 11 =90 no.s div by 35 =28 rem = 1000(90+28) = 882 but 2 no.s div by both 11 and 35
hence, my ans: 882+2=884 i.e., A

Hello,
Calculate the no. of terms from 1 to 1000 (inclusive) that are divisible by 11 or 35 or both.
1. No of terms divisible by 11 > 1000/11 = 90 2. No of terms divisible by 35 > 1000/35 = 28 3. No of terms divisible by 11 and 35 > 1000/(11*35) = 2
Answer = 1000 (90+282) = 884.

Hi,
How can you rephrase the question in problem solving method and also in Data sufficiency method.
Thanks in advance.

(A) 884 (B) 890 (C) 892 (D) 910 (E) 945
1.From 11000 numbers divisible by 11 = 990/11 = 90 2.From 11000 numbers divisible by 35 = 1050/35 2 = 28 3.Common numbers(div by 11 and 35) = 35 *11 and 35 *22 (2nos) So numbers not div = 1000(90+282) = 884
IMO A

Number of numbers divisible by 11 = 1000/11 = 90 Number of numbers divisible by 35 = 1000/35 = 28 Number of numbers divisible by both 11 and 35 = 1000/(35*11) = 1000/385 = 2. So,total number of numbers divisible by both 11 and 35 = 90 + 28  2 = 116. Then,the number of integers from 1 to 1000 (inclusive) that are not divisible by 11 nor by 35 = 1000  116 = 884.

Thank you for completing the simple effective analysis!

In order to find the count of numbers between 1 and 1000 that are divisible by neither 11 nor 35, first find the count of numbers that are divisible by either of the numbers, then subtract that number from 1000 to get to the answer.
To find the count of the numbers that are divisible by either of the numbers, find the count of positive multiples of 11, that of 35, and that of 11*35 in the given range. Then add the first two counts; subtract the third count. Then, subtract this number from 1000 to get to the answer.
Count of multiple of 11 less than 1000: 11.x < 1000 => x < 1000/11 => x < 90.9 Therefore, the count of positive numbers less than 1000 and divisible by 11 is 90.
Count of multiple of 35 less than 1000: 35.y < 1000 => y < 1000/35 => y < 28.5 Therefore, the count of positive numbers less than 1000 and divisible by 35 is 28.
Count of multiple of 11*35 less than 1000: 11.35.z < 1000 => z < 1000/35*11 => z < 2.5 Therefore, the count of positive numbers less than 1000 and divisible by 11*35 is 2.
Count of the positive number less than 1000 and divisible by either of the numbers = 90 + 28  2 = 116
So, the count of the numbers between 1 and 1000 that are divisible by neither 11 nor 35 = 1000  116 = 884
Correct answer is A.
