## Problem

How many three-digit numbers are divisible by 13?

$\textbf{(A)}\ 7\qquad\textbf{(B)}\ 67\qquad\textbf{(C)}\ 69\qquad\textbf{(D)}\ 76\qquad\textbf{(E)}\ 77$

## Solution 1

Let $k$ be any positive integer so that $13k$ is a multiple of $13$. For the smallest three-digit number, $13k>100$ and $k>\frac{100}{13} \approx 7.7$. For the greatest three-digit number, $13k<999$ and $k<\frac{999}{13} \approx 76.8$. The number $k$ can range from $8$ to $76$ so there are $\boxed{\textbf{(C)}\ 69}$ three-digit numbers.
