how many integers, x, for which x/2, x/3 and x/5 is also an integer can be found between 1 and 500? help me!!

  • algebra -

    the number must be divisible by 2, by 3, and by 5
    that is it must be divisible by 30
    So the sequence is
    30 60 90 ... < 500
    this is an arithmetic sequence, where
    a = 30 and d = 30
    what term is around 500
    a+ (n-1)d = 500
    30 + (n-1)(30) = 500
    30 + 30n - 30 = 500
    30n = 500
    n = 16.66

    so n = 16 , because 17 would be more than 500

    check:
    term(16) = 30 + 15(30) = 480

    there are 16 such numbers
