Problem #2075


For all positive integers $n$ less than $2002$, let

\begin{eqnarray*} a_n =\left\{ \begin{array}{lr} 11, & \text{if\ }n\ \text{is\ divisible\ by\ }13\ \text{and\ }14;\\ 13, & \text{if\ }n\ \text{is\ divisible\ by\ }14\ \text{and\ }11;\\ 14, & \text{if\ }n\ \text{is\ divisible\ by\ }11\ \text{and\ }13;\\ 0, & \text{otherwise}. \end{array} \right. \end{eqnarray*}

Calculate $\sum_{n=1}^{2001} a_n$.

$\mathrm{(A)}\ 448 \qquad\mathrm{(B)}\ 486 \qquad\mathrm{(C)}\ 1560 \qquad\mathrm{(D)}\ 2001 \qquad\mathrm{(E)}\ 2002$

Instructions for entering answers:

  • Reduce fractions to lowest terms and enter in the form 7/9.
  • Numbers involving pi should be written as 7pi or 7pi/3 as appropriate.
  • Square roots should be written as sqrt(3), 5sqrt(5), sqrt(3)/2, or 7sqrt(2)/3 as appropriate.
  • Exponents should be entered in the form 10^10.
  • If the problem is multiple choice, enter the appropriate (capital) letter.
  • Enter points with parentheses, like so: (4,5)
  • Complex numbers should be entered in rectangular form unless otherwise specified, like so: 3+4i. If there is no real component, enter only the imaginary component (i.e. 2i, NOT 0+2i).
