Let \(m\) and \(n\) denote the greatest and least positive three-digit multiples of 7, respectively.

What is the value of \(m + n\) ?

 

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline m &=& 7\cdot \left \lfloor{ \frac{999}{7} }\right \rfloor{} \\ &=& 7\cdot 142 \\ &=& 994 \\\\ n &=& 7\cdot \left \lceil{ \frac{100}{7} }\right \rceil{} \\ &=& 7\cdot 15 \\ &=& 105 \\\\ m+n &=& 994 + 105 \\ &=& 1099 \\ \hline \end{array}\)
