comment Solve 2 equations with 2 variables and the floor() function
Why do the equations imply that $MV < R + 1$? Considering the original problem, that is not the case. The constraint is $1 <= R <= M$. If the equations imply that perhaps I stated them incorrectly.

comment Solve 2 equations with 2 variables and the floor() function
$N = \lfloor\frac{X}{R} - \frac{1}{V}\rfloor + 1$ is correct, but I'm still unsure how to solve for $R$ in that case.

Doesn't $V = R / M$? Also, I missed that $R$ is similarly the result of the floor function.
