**Recursion: Davis' Staircase**

### Problem Statement :

Davis has a number of staircases in his house and he likes to climb each staircase 1, 2, or 3 steps at a time. Being a very precocious child, he wonders how many ways there are to reach the top of the staircase. Given the respective heights for each of the staircases in his house, find and print the number of ways he can climb each staircase, module 10^10 + 7 on a new line. Example n = 5 The staircase has 5 steps. Davis can step on the following sequences of steps: 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 2 1 1 2 1 1 2 1 1 2 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 1 2 1 2 1 1 3 1 3 1 3 1 1 2 3 3 2 Function Description Complete the stepPerms function using recursion in the editor below. stepPerms has the following parameter(s): int n: the number of stairs in the staircase Returns int: the number of ways Davis can climb the staircase, modulo 10000000007 Input Format The first line contains a single integer, s, the number of staircases in his house. Each of the following s lines contains a single integer, n, the height of staircase i. Constraints 1 <= s <= 5 1 <= n <= 36
