Hi Fellow Coders,

Hope you are all doing good. This is my first blog. Today I gave Hackwithinfy test. I got asked a question similar to the standard DP problem which is Count the number of ways to make the change (repetitions of coins are allowed and order does matter). I know this problem can be solved in Quadratic time

O(N * W)

W — > Required Change

N — > Number of coins

But the constraints given in the problem are huge

1 <= N <= 10^5

1 <= W <= 10^9

1 <= A[i] <= 10^2 (A[i] — > stores the value of the coin)

I was so sure this would give me a TLE. But, I couldn't come up with a better approach than the standard one. I wonder if there is a better approach that would have given me an AC.
