Step 1
Tim eats multiples of three
Todd eats multiples of four
Rick eats multiples of six.
Gavin is not bussy.
Thus we have numbers to work with 3,4,6.
Step 2
Therefore, since uncle Sam want to give
same number of strawberries.
Then the number \(\displaystyle={2}{c}{m}{\left({3},{4},{6}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle={12}\)
Therefore, uncle Sam should give 12 strawberries to each of kid.
Option E is correct.

Exercise 1: Counting binary strings.
Count the number of binary strings of length 10 subject to each of the following restrictions.
There is only one binary string of length ten with no 1's: 00000000000. There are \(\displaystyle{2}^{{{10}}}\) binary strings of length ten. Therefore the number of binary strings of length ten with at least one 1 is \(\displaystyle{2}^{{{10}}}-{1}\).
(b)
The string has at least one 1 and at least one 0.
(c)
The string contains exactly five 1's or it begins with a 0.
