Dynamic Programming – Stairs Climbing Puzzle

Objective: A child is climbing up a staircase with n steps, and can hop either 1 step, 2 steps, or 3 steps at a time. Implement a method to count how many possible ways the child can jump up the stairs. Example: Number of stairs : 3 Number of ways = 4 ( {1,1,1}, {1,2}, … Read more

Dynamic Programming – Minimum Coin Change Problem

Objective: Given a amount ‘A’ and n coins,   v1<v2<v3<………..<vn . Write a program to find out minimum numbers of coins required to make the change for the amount ‘A’. Example: Amount: 5 Coins [] = 1, 2, 3. No of ways to make the change are : { 1,1,1,1,1} , {1,1,1,2}, {2,2,1},{1,1,3} and {3,2}. So … Read more

Print All the Subsets of a Given Set (Power Set)

Objective: Given a set of numbers, print all the posssible subsets of it including empty set. Power Set: In mathematics, PowerSet of any given set S, PS(S) is set of all subsets of S including empty set. Example: S ={1,2,3} PS(S): {{ᵩ}, {1}, {2}, {3}, {1, 2}, {1, 3}, {2, 3}, {1, 2, 3}}. Approach: … Read more

Reverse The Doubly Linked List
