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

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:

Output:

**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.
