This is the number of positive intergers not exceeding 100 that are divisible by either 8 or 12 $\left\lfloor {\frac{{100}}{8}} \right\rfloor + \left\lfloor {\frac{{100}}{{12}}} \right\rfloor - \left\lfloor {\frac{{100}}{{24}}} \right\rfloor$

I see now. I wrote ARE DIVISIBLE, when I meant to say ARE NOT....
So, I am right?
