# Problem 1

If we list all the natural numbers below 10 that are multiples of 3 or 5, we get 3, 5, 6 and 9. The sum of these multiples is 23. Find the sum of all the multiples of 3 or 5 below 1000.

def question
"If we list all the natural numbers below 10 that are multiples of 3 or 5, we get 3, 5, 6 and 9.
The sum of these multiples is 23.
Find the sum of all the multiples of 3 or 5 below 1000."

def sum_multiples_3_and_5 n
return 0 if(n <= 1)
if(n % 3 == 0 || n % 5 == 0)
n + sum_multiples_3_and_5(n - 1)
else
sum_multiples_3_and_5(n - 1)
end
end
