I need help in the tiling problem.This the problem I cannot understand how to count the total no of dominos in the case of blue colors. Should I write two dp tables one is the row-major matrix(for red) and the other is the column-major matrix(for blue)? I cannot understand how to write. Please help...

If last cell if blue then it's equivalent to dp[i-1]. If last cell is red but 2nd last cell is blue it is equivalent to dp[i-2]. And the remaining case, if both last 2 cells are red, it is equivalent to dp[i-2] and a tile on last 2 positions. That tile will contribute for all the 1<<(i-2) states of the previous cells.Hence, dp[i]=dp[i-1]+2*dp[i-2]+a[i-2] where a[x]=2^x.That was the main intuition behind the solution.
