How many multiples of 4 are there between 12 and 96, inclusive?

a. 21
b. 22
c. 23
d. 24
e. 25

didn't know where to begin with this one either... this is the last question out of my problem set that I did not get... if you'll notice there's a theme with the questions I've just posted... all the same topic... Exponents, Odds & Evens, Postives, Negatives, and Roots were all easy for me... ::sigh::

Multiples of 4 are : 12, 16, 20, 24, ........, 96
for a evenly spaced set: total no of terms = (last - first)/increment
= 96-12/4
= 21
as the question ask for inclusive = 21+1 =22

quick question,

if the problem mentions "inclusive" - we add the 1.

large - small / 2 + 1

if the problem doesn't mention inclusive - do we not add the 1?

thanks.

no.

as for the q. above it can be solved this way-

((96-12)/4) +1=22
