# Count of possible permutations of a number represented as a sum of 2’s, 4’s and 6’s only

Given an integer **N**, the task is to find out the number of permutations in which N can be represented as a sum of **2**s, **4**s, and **6**s only.**Note:** The different permutations of the same combination will also be counted.**Examples:**

Input:N = 8Output:7Explanation:The possible combinations are:

2 2 2 2

4 4

4 2 2

2 2 4

2 4 2

2 6

6 2Input:N = 6Output:4

**Approach:** In order to solve this problem, we are using a Dynamic Programming approach:

- As the possible numbers that can be added to reach
**N**are 2, 4, and 6, they can be considered as base cases. By making use of the base cases further cases can be computed. - Let us consider a
**dp[]**array of size**N + 1**which computes and stores at every index**i**the possible ways to form a value**i**using only 2, 4, 6.

dp[2] = 1

dp[4] = 2 { 4 can be represented as 2+2, 4}

dp[6] = 4 { 6 can be represented as 2+2+2, 2+4, 4+2, 6}

dp[i] = dp[i-2]+dp[i-4] + dp[i – 6] for all even values of i in the range[8, N]

- Hence, dp[N] contains the required answer.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
