If you're not good at remembering formulas, then another option is to look for a pattern.BTGmoderatorDC wrote: ↑Sat Nov 12, 2022 12:32 amHow many multiples of 4 are there between 16 and 260 ?

So, we want to know how many terms are in the sequence 20, 24, 28, . . .. 252, 256
Notice that:
20 = 4(5)
24 = 4(6)
28 = 4(7)
32 = 4(8)
.
.
.
252 = 4(63)
256 = 4(64)
So, the number of terms in the sequence 20, 24, 28, . . .. 252, 256 is equal to the number of integers from 5 to 64 inclusive.
Well we have a formula (an easy formula) for finding this. We know that the number of integers from x to y inclusive is equal to yx+1
So, the number of integers from 5 to 64 inclusive is equal to 645+1 = 60
