I solved this question for 100 points, however I had a wrong calculation on an edge case. I think the test cases are weak.

As I tested,the wrong calculation on an edge case is included in the question. I think the test cases may be wrong. I don't want to explain further because it may suggest solution to other people so I would like to talk to the author by email. If you can please email me at

for n=4 and p=4 if you use any of the pair(1,2,1) or(2,1,1) the value of M you will get is 0 not 2
