So my answer if 6 here. how to go for this question ? thanks

So there are floor(n / 2) + floor(n / 5) - floor(n / 10) multiples of 2, 4 and 5 up to n. subtract floor(n / 10) because multiples of 10 are counted twice; as a multiple of 2 as well as a multiple of 5.

Adding them yields that some are counted more than once, for example 12, 24 etc. Which are counted more than once? How to find them?

Choose what you think you can do best to have me understand what you want. If I don't understand, I'll ask for clarification. What programming language are you using?
