How many six-digit positive integers are there, which is evenly divisible by 4 or 9?
(If you let A be the amount of six-digit positive integers that are evenly divisible by 4 and B be the amount of six-digit positive integers that are evenly divisible by 9, so you should therefore
determine the number of elements in A ∪ B.
Remember that A and B in this case may not be disjoint sets.)
