# Check if N can be represented as sum of integers chosen from set {A, B}

Given three integers **N**, **A** and **B**, the task is to find whether **N** can be represented as sum of **A’s** and **B’s**.

**Examples:**

Input:N = 11, A = 2, B = 3Output:Yes

2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 3 = 11

Input:N = 8, A = 3, B = 7Output:No

**Approach:** An efficient solution is to call a recursive function starting with zero (because zero is always possible). If function call is **fun(x)** then recursively call **fun(x + a)** and **fun(x + b)** (because if **x** is possible then **x + a** and **x + b** are also possible). Return out of the function if **x > n**.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
