  Learn Tech Skills from Scratch @ Scaler EDGE # Minimum Lights to Activate

Problem Description

There is a corridor in a Jail which is N units long. Given an array A of size N. The ith index of this array is 0 if the light at ith position is faulty otherwise it is 1.

All the lights are of specific power B which if is placed at position X, it can light the corridor from [ X-B+1, X+B-1].

Initially all lights are off.

Return the minimum number of lights to be turned ON to light the whole corridor or -1 if the whole corridor cannot be lighted.

Problem Constraints

1 <= N <= 1000

1 <= B <= 1000

Input Format

First argument is an integer array A where A[i] is either 0 or 1.

Second argument is an integer B.

Output Format
`Return the minimum number of lights to be turned ON to light the whole corridor or -1 if the whole corridor cannot be lighted.`

Example Input

Input 1:

```A = [ 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1].
B = 3```

Input 2:

```A = [ 0, 0, 0, 1, 0].
B = 3```

Example Output

Output 1:

`2`

Output 2:

`-1`

Example Explanation

Explanation 1:

```In the first configuration, Turn on the lights at 3rd and 8th index.
Light at 3rd index covers from [ 1, 5] and light at 8th index covers [ 6, 8].```

Explanation 2:

`In the second configuration, there is no light which can light the first corridor.`
