# Sum of all numbers divisible by 6 in a given range

Given a range L-R, find the sum of all numbers divisible by 6 in range L-R

L and R are very large.

Examples:

Input : 1 20 Output : 36 Explanation: 6 + 12 + 18 = 36 Input : 5 7 Output : 6 Explanation: 6 is the only divisible number in range 5-7

A **naive approach **is be to run a loop from L to R and sum up all the numbers divisible by 6.

An **efficient approach **is to sum all the numbers divisible by 6 up to R in sum, and sum all numbers divisible by 6 up to L-1. And then there subtraction will be the answer.

sum = 6 + 12 + 8 + …….(R/6)terms.

sum = 6(1 + 2 + 3……R/6 terms)

sumR = 3 * (R/6) * (R/6+1)

similarly we get

sumL as 3 * ((L-1)/6) * ((L-1/6)+1)

and the final answer as sumR – sumL.
