leetcode #70 in cpp

You are climbing a stair case. It takes n steps to reach to the top.

Each time you can either climb 1 or 2 steps. In how many distinct ways can you climb to the top?


We use DP. see comments.


class Solution {

    int climbStairs(int n) {
       vector<int> dp(n+1,0);//dp[i] = distinct ways from i to n
       if(n-1 >= 0) dp[n-1] = 1;//position with 1 step from destination. only 1 way to reach the destination
       if(n-2 >= 0) dp[n-2] = 2;//position with 2 steps from destination. only 2 way to reach the destination;
       for(int i = n-3; i >=0 ; i --){
           dp[i] = dp[i+2]+dp[i+1];//distinct ways from position i to n: 1. we take one step to i+1; 2. we take 2 steps to i+2
       }                            //thus distinct ways from position i to n is the sum of the ones at i+1 and i+2
       return dp[0];
