In combinatorial mathematics, the Lobb numberLm, n counts the number of ways that n + m open parentheses can be arranged to form the start of a valid sequence of balanced parentheses.
The Lobb number are parameterized by two non-negative integers m and n with n >= m >= 0. It can be obtained by:
Lobb Number is also used to count the number of ways in which n + m copies of the value +1 and n – m copies of the value -1 may be arranged into a sequence such that all of the partial sums of the sequence are non- negative.
Input : n = 3, m = 2
Output : 5
Input : n =5, m =3
