Python Program to Count number of binary strings without consecutive 1’s

  • Last Updated : 02 Jan, 2019

Given a positive integer N, count all possible distinct binary strings of length N such that there are no consecutive 1’s.

Examples:

Input:  N = 2
Output: 3
// The 3 strings are 00, 01, 10

Input: N = 3
Output: 5
// The 5 strings are 000, 001, 010, 100, 101

Recommended: Please solve it on “PRACTICE ” first, before moving on to the solution.

Python3




# Python program to count
# all distinct binary strings
# without two consecutive 1's
  
def countStrings(n):
  
    a =[0 for i in range(n)]
    b =[0 for i in range(n)]
    a[0] = b[0] = 1
    for i in range(1, n):
        a[i] = a[i-1] + b[i-1]
        b[i] = a[i-1]
      
    return a[n-1] + b[n-1]
  
# Driver program to test
# above functions
  
print(countStrings(3))
  
# This code is contributed

Output:
5
