There is a set of 1000 switches, each of which has four positions, called , and . When the position of any switch changes, it is only from to , from to , from to , or from to . Initially each switch is in position . The switches are labeled with the 1000 different integers , where , and take on the values . At step i of a 1000-step process, the -th switch is advanced one step, and so are all the other switches whose labels divide the label on the -th switch. After step 1000 has been completed, how many switches will be in position ?
