Count the numbers divisible by ‘M’ in a given range

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 26 Apr, 2021

A and B are two numbers which define a range, where A <= B. Find the total numbers in the given range [A … B] divisible by ‘M’
Examples: 
 

Input  : A = 25, B = 100, M = 30
Output : 3
Explanation : In the given range [25 - 100], 
30, 60 and 90 are divisible by 30

Input : A = 6, B = 15, M = 3
Output : 4
Explanation : In the given range [6 - 15],
6, 9, 12 and 15 are divisible by 3

 

Method 1 : [Brute-force] 
Run a loop from A to B. If a number divisible by ‘M’ is found, increment counter.
Below is the implementation of above method: 
 
 

C++




// Program to count the numbers divisible by
// M in a given range
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
int countDivisibles(int A, int B, int M)
{
    // Variable to store the counter
    int counter = 0;
 
    // Running a loop from A to B and check
    // if a number is divisible by M.
    for (int i = A; i <= B; i++)
        if (i % M == 0)
            counter++;
 
    return counter;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    // A and B define the range, M is the dividend
    int A = 30, B = 100, M = 30;
 
    // Printing the result
    cout << countDivisibles(A, B, M) << endl;
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to count the numbers divisible by
// M in a given range
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG {
    // Function to count the numbers divisible by
    // M in a given range
    static int countDivisibles(int A, int B, int M)
    {
        // Variable to store the counter
        int counter = 0;
 
        // Running a loop from A to B and check
        // if a number is divisible by M.
        for (int i = A; i <= B; i++)
            if (i % M == 0)
                counter++;
 
        return counter;
    }
 
    // driver program
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // A and B define the range, M is the dividend
        int A = 30, B = 100, M = 30;
 
        // Printing the result
        System.out.println(countDivisibles(A, B, M));
    }
}

    for i in range(A, B):
        if (i % M == 0):
            counter = counter + 1
 
    return counter

Method 2 : [Better] 
The loop can be modified by incrementing the iterator ‘M’ times after the first divisible is found. Also, if ‘A’ is less than ‘M’, it can be changed to ‘M’, because a number less than ‘M’ can not be divided by it.
Method 3 : [Efficient] 
 



Let B = b * M and
    A = a * M
The count of numbers divisible by
'M' between A and B will be equal
to b - a.

Example:
A = 25, B = 70, M = 10.
Now, a = 2, b = 7.
Count = 7 - 2 = 5.

It can be observed that, if A is divisible by M, ‘b – a’ will exclude the count for A, so the count will be less by 1. Thus, in this case we add 1 explicitly.
Example when A is divisible by M: 
 

A = 30, B = 70, M = 10.
Now, a = 3, b = 7.
Count = 7 - 3 = 4.
But, Count should be 5. Thus, we will
add 1 explicitly.

Below is the implementation of the above method : 
 
 

C++




// C++ program to count the numbers divisible by
// M in a given range
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to count the numbers divisible by
// M in a given range
int countDivisibles(int A, int B, int M)
{
   
    // Add 1 explicitly as A is divisible by M
    if (A % M == 0)
        return (B / M) - (A / M) + 1;
 
    // A is not divisible by M
    return (B / M) - (A / M);
}
 
// driver program
int main()
{
   
    // A and B define the range, M is the dividend
    int A = 30, B = 100, M = 30;
 
    // Printing the result
    cout << (countDivisibles(A, B, M));
}
