In a previous lesson, you used the % (or mod)
operator to find the remainder one gets when two numbers are divided,
say like a % b. If a remainder is ever zero, it means that b
divides evenly into a, or a is divisible by b.
Try this (from Salkind, 1966): Use a for-loop and an if-statement to
find the number of positive integers less than 1000 that are NOT
divisible by either 5 or 7. To count, a number must not be simultaneously
divisible by either 5 or 7.
Now you try. Finish the code with % and an if statement that increases count if a given number is found.
Type your code here:
See your results here:
Start with the code here that initializes the variable count to
zero, then runs the variable num from 1 to 999 (these are positive
numbers less than 1000). This will generate your test numbers. If you
determine that num is not divisible by 5 and 7, then increase
count by one.
