Given three integers N, A, B, the task is to find the remainder when the sum of integers which are divisible by either A or B in the range [1, N] is divided by the number of integers in this range.

**Note:** The numbers A and B are co-primes.

**Examples:**

Input:N = 88, A = 11, B = 8

Output:8

Explanation:

There are a total of 18 numbers in the range [1, 88] which are divisible by either 8 or 11. They are:

{ 8, 11, 16, 22, 24, 32, 33, 40, 44, 48, 55, 56, 64, 66, 72, 77, 80, 88 }. Therefore, the sum of these numbers is 836. Therefore, 836 % 18 = 8.

Input:N = 100, A = 7, B = 19

Output:13

Explanation:

There are a total of 19 numbers in the range [1, 100] which are divisible by either 7 or 19. They are:

{ 7, 14, 19, 21, 28, 35, 38, 42, 49, 56, 57, 63, 70, 76, 77, 84, 91, 95, 98 }. Therefore, the sum of these numbers is 1020. Therefore, 1020 % 19 = 13.

**Naive Approach:** The naive approach is to run a loop from 1 to N and count all the numbers which are divisible by either A or B while simultaneously adding those numbers in a variable to find its sum.

**Time Complexity:** O(N)

**Efficient Approach:** Efficient approach is to use the division method.

- By using the division method, the
**count of the numbers**which are**divisible**either by**A**or**B**can be found in the constant time. The idea is to:**Divide N by A**to get the count of numbers divisible by**A**in the range [1, N].**Divide N by B**to get the count of numbers divisible by**B**in the range [1, N].**Divide N by A * B**to get the count of numbers divisible by**both A and B**.**Add**the values obtained in**step 1 and step 2**and**subtract**the value obtained in**step 3**to remove the numbers which have been counted twice.

- Since we are even interested in finding the
**numbers which are divisible**in this range, the idea is to reduce the number of times the conditions are checked by the following way:- Instead of completely relying on one loop, we can use
**two loops**. - One loop is to find the numbers divisible by
**A**. Instead of incrementing the values by 1, we start the loop from A and increment it by A. This reduces the number of comparisons drastically. - Similarly, another loop is used to find the numbers divisible by
**B**. - Since again, there might be repetitions in the numbers, the numbers are stored in a set so that there are no repetitions.

- Instead of completely relying on one loop, we can use
- Once the count and sum of the numbers are found, then directly modulo operation can be applied to compute the final answer.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

**Time Complexity Analysis:**

- The time taken to run the for loop to find the numbers which are divisible by A is
**O(N / A)**. - The time taken to run the for loop to find the numbers which are divisible by B is
**O(N / B)**. - Therefore, overall time complexity is
**O(N / A) + O(N / B)**.
