Someone help me with divisibility!

For a range of 1 to 500 (inclusive), how many numbers are there divisible by 2 or 3 or 5 or 4...........(6 will be included! :D ).........how to do that? and what if there are more numbers than four?

Just use the inclusion-exclusion principle: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inclusion%E2%80%93exclusion_principle Paul Fournier · 2 years ago

All nos. ending with 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 are divisible by 2..so there are 20 no,from 1 to 500. Nos ending with 0 or 5 are divisible by 5 . U may use A P for finding the nos. 3, 6,9,.......498 is an A P. u can find no. of terms . First term is 3, last is 498 and d=3 Asha Gupta · 2 years ago
