# Sum of first N natural numbers which are divisible by X or Y

Given a number **N**. Given two numbers **X** and **Y**, the task is to find the sum of all those numbers from 1 to N that are divisible by X or by Y.

**Examples**:

Input: N = 20Output: 98Input: N = 14Output: 45

**Approach**: To solve the problem, follow the below steps:

->Find the sum of numbers that are divisible by X upto N. Denote it by S1.

->Find the sum of numbers that are divisible by Y upto N. Denote it by S2.

->Find the sum of numbers that are divisible by both X and Y (X*Y) upto N. Denote it by S3.

->The final answer will be **S1 + S2 – S3**.

In order to find the sum, we can use the general formula of A.P. which is:

Sn = (n/2) * {2*a + (n-1)*d}

**For S1**: The total numbers that will be divisible by X upto N will be N/X and the sum will be:

Hence, S1 = ((N/X)/2) * (2 * X + (N/X - 1) * X)

**For S2**: The total numbers that will be divisible by Y upto N will be N/Y and the sum will be:

Hence, S2 = ((N/Y)/2) * (2 * Y + (N/Y - 1) * Y)

**For S3**: The total numbers that will be divisible by both X and Y upto N will be N/(X*Y) and the sum will be:

Hence, S2 = ((N/(X*Y))/2) * (2 * Y + (N/(X*Y) - 1) * (X*Y))

Therefore, the result will be:

S = S1 + S2 - S3

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
