help pls!!
How many different numbers between 1/1000 and 1000 can be written either as a power of 2 or as a power of 3, where the exponent is an integer? Remember that we’re counting all possible numbers, not just integers.

1. How many different numbers between 1/1000 and 1000 can be written either as a power of 2 or as a power of 3, where the exponent is an integer?

2^9 = 512    So that is  9+9+1 = 19 powers of 2

3^6=729     so that is 6+6+1 = 13 powers of 3

Now you just have to work out how many are powers of 2 and 3 because they have  been counted twice.

If they are powers of 2 and 3 that means they are powers of 6

6^3 = 216 which is the biggest so that is  3+1+3 = 9

So I think the answer is      19+13-9 = 23
