Problem
Consider the following sets of elements each: How many of these sets contain exactly two multiples of ?
Solution 1
We apply casework to this problem. The only sets that contain two multiples of seven are those for which:
- The multiples of are and That is, the first and eighth elements of such sets are multiples of
- The multiples of are and That is, the second and ninth elements of such sets are multiples of
- The multiples of are and That is, the third and tenth elements of such sets are multiples of
The first element is for some integer It is a multiple of when
The second element is for some integer It is a multiple of when
The third element is for some integer It is a multiple of when
Each case has sets. Therefore, the answer is

Solution 2
We find a pattern. Through quick listing , we can figure out that the first set has multiple of . The second set has multiple of . The third set has multiples of . The fourth set has multiple of . The fifth set has multiples of . The sixth set has multiple of . The seventh set has multiples of . The eighth set has multiple of . The ninth set has multiples of . The tenth set has multiples of . We see that the pattern for the number of multiples per set goes: We can reasonably conclude that the pattern repeats every times. So, for every sets, there are three multiples of . We calculate and multiply that by (We disregard the remainder of since it doesn't add any extra sets with multiples of .). We get .
Solution 3 (Fastest)
Each set contains exactly or multiples of .
There are total sets and multiples of .
Thus, there are sets with multiples of .
