Given an integer **N**, the task is to count the number of binary strings possible such that there is no substring of length ≥ 3 of all 1’s. This count can become very large so print the answer modulo **10 ^{9} + 7**.

**Examples:**

Input:N = 4

Output:13

All possible valid strings are 0000, 0001, 0010, 0100,

1000, 0101, 0011, 1010, 1001, 0110, 1100, 1101 and 1011.

Input:N = 2

Output:4

**Approach:** For every value from **1** to **N**, the only required strings are in which the number of substrings in which ‘1’ appears consecutively for just two times, one time or zero times. This can be calculated from **2** to **N** recursively. Dynamic programming can be used for memoization where **dp[i][j]** will store the number of possible strings such that **1** just appeared consecutively **j** times upto the **i ^{th}** index and

**j**will be

**0, 1, 2, …, i**(may vary from

**1**to

**N**).

**dp[i][0] = dp[i – 1][0] + dp[i – 1][1] + dp[i – 1][2]**as in

**i**position,

**0**will be put.

**dp[i][1] = dp[i – 1][0]**as there is no

**1**at the

**(i – 1)**position so we take that value.

^{th}**dp[i][2] = dp[i – 1][1]**as first

**1**appeared at

**(i – 1)**position (consecutively) so we take that value directly.

^{th}The base cases are for length 1 string i.e.

**dp[1][0] = 1**,

**dp[1][1] = 1**,

**dp[1][2] = 0**. So, find all the value

**dp[N][0] + dp[N][1] + dp[N][2]**ans sum of all possible cases at the

**N**position.

^{th}Below is the implementation of the above approach:
