# C++ code to find minimum jump to reach home by frog

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have one binary string S with n bits and another number d. On a number line, a frog wants to reach point n, starting from the point 1. The frog can jump to the right at a distance not more than d. For each point from 1 to n if there is a lily flower it is marked as 1, and 0 if not. The frog can jump only in points with a lilies. We have to find the minimal number of jumps that the frog needs to reach n. If not possible, return -1.

So, if the input is like S = "10010101"; d = 4, then the output will be 2, because from position 1, it jumps to 4, then at the index 8(n).

## Steps

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

n := size of s
x := 0
y := 0
while (x < n - 1 and y <= n), do:
if s[x] is same as '1', then:
x := x + d
increase y by 1
Otherwise
(decrease x by 1)
if y >= n, then:
return -1
Otherwise
return y

## Example

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
int solve(string s, int d){
int n = s.size();
int x = 0, y = 0;
while (x < n - 1 && y <= n){
if (s[x] == '1')
x += d, ++y;
else
--x;
}
if (y >= n)
return -1;
else
return y;
}
int main(){
string S = "10010101";
int d = 4;
cout << solve(S, d) << endl;
}

## Input

"10010101", 4

## Output

2
