What does the (52-1-m)/(52-m+1) stand for? I understand that the second part would be the probability for the two red aces. Also, how did you find that the maximal is k=1? And thank you for your help!!

comment Compositions with first part 1
Thank you!! What if the second part is 1 instead of the first part? Would it still be the same solution?

So we can assume that every integer smaller than n but greater than 8, can be expressed as a combination of 3- and 5- pesos. My confusion lies in proving n+3..
