please help in solving this problem

I don’t know the exact solution but would like to share my thoughts on this problem.

**The Problem statement in a Nutshell:**

Given N, M and M pairs of the form (min_i, max_i), your task is to find the number of tuples (x_1,\ x_2,\ \dots,\ x_m) that satisfy the following conditions.

- min_i\le x_i\le max_i
- \sum_{i = 1}^{M} x_i = N

**Example 1**

```
N = 3, M = 2
The Pairs: (0, 3), (1, 3)
Output: 3
Explanation:
The Solution set is given by:
{(0, 3), (1, 2), (2, 1)}
```

**Example 2**

```
N = 5, M = 3
The Pairs: (0, 2), (1, 3), (2, 3)
Output: 5
Explanation:
The Solution set is given by:
{(0, 2, 3), (0, 3, 2), (1, 1, 3), (1, 2, 2), (2, 1, 2)}
```

This should be a combinatorics problem (or maybe, a DP problem).

@cubefreak777 may help us.

DP_{i,j} \rightarrow \text{Number of ways to have a sum $j$ with first $i$ elements satisfying }\\
\text{$L_i \le x_i \le R_i$ for every $1\le i \le M $}\\

DP_{i,j}=\sum_{k=L_i}^{R_i}DP_{i-1,j-k}

Final answer will be DP_{M,N}

const int M=1e9+7 ;
void solve(){

vector<vector<int>>DP(m+1,vector<int>(n+1)) ;
vector<int>l(m+1),r(m+1) ;
for(int i=1;i<m+1;i++)
cin >>l[i] >> r[i] ;
DP[0][0]=1 ;
for(int i=1;i<m+1;i++){
for(int j=0;j<n+1;j++){
for(int k=l[i];k<r[i]+1;k++){
if(j<k)
continue ;
(DP[i][j]+=DP[i-1][j-k])%=M ;
}
}
}
cout << DP[m][n] << '\n' ;
}
signed main(){
ios_base::sync_with_stdio(false);
cin.tie(NULL);
int TC ;
cin >>TC ;
for(int _=0;_<TC;_++){
cout << "Case "<<_+1<<": " ;
solve() ;
}
}
```

This stupid judge is not giving a verdict on my solution for 15mins. Do let me know if this fails for some case, I haven’t tested it.
