## Homework Statement

Prove that every integer n>= 14 is a sum of 3's and/ or 8's.

## Homework Equations

Induction Hypothesis

## The Attempt at a Solution

Base Case: P(0):

Suppose n= 14, and k is an integer representing number of times 3 or 8 is added:

14= 3k;

k=14/3 ( this shows that 14 is not a sum of 3's)

But the question says to show that. I'm confused on how to show that.
