# Count number of ways to jump to reach end

Given an array of numbers where each element represents the max number of jumps that can be made forward from that element. For each array element, count number of ways jumps can be made from that element to reach the end of the array. If an element is 0, then move cannot be made through that element. The element that cannot reach to the end should have a count “-1”.

**Examples:**

Input : {3, 2, 0, 1} Output : 2 1 -1 0 For3number of steps or jumps that can be taken are 1, 2 or 3. The different ways are:3 -> 2 -> 13 -> 1For2number of steps or jumps that can be taken are 1, or 2. The different ways are:2 -> 1For0number of steps or jumps that can be taken are 0. One cannot move forward from this point. For1number of steps or jumps that can be taken are 1. But the element is at the end so no jump is required. Input : {1, 3, 5, 8, 9, 1, 0, 7, 6, 8, 9} Output : 52 52 28 16 8 -1 -1 4 2 1 0

This problem is a variation of Minimum number of jumps to reach end(Method 3). Here we need to count all ways to reach end from every cell.

The solution is a modified version of the solution to the problem of Minimum number of jumps to reach end(Method 3).

This problem aims to count the different ways to jump from each element so as to reach to the end. For each element the count is being calculated by adding the counts of all those forward elements that can reach to the end and to which the current element could reach + 1(if the element can directly reach to the end).

**Algorithm:**

countWays(arr, n)Initialize arraycount_jump[n]= {0} count_jump[n-1] = 0 fori= n-2 to 0 if arr[i] >= (n-i-1) count_jump[i]++ forj=i+1; j < n-1 && j <= arr[i]+i; i++ if count_jump[j] != -1 count_jump[i] += count_jump[j] if count_jump[i] == 0 count_jump[i] = -1 for i = 0 to n-1 print count_jump[i]
