Medium Accuracy: 58.61% Submissions: 415 Points: 4

Given two numbers n and x, find out the total number of ways n can be expressed as sum of xth power of unique natural numbers.

Example 1:

Input: n = 10, x = 2
Output: 1 
Explanation: 10 = 12 + 32, Hence total 1 possibility. 


Example 2:

Input: n = 100, x = 2
Output: 3
Explanation: 100 = 102 
62 + 82 and 12 + 32 + 42 + 52 + 72 
Hence total 3 possibilities. 


Your Task:  
You dont need to read input or print anything. Complete the function numOfWays() which takes n and x as input parameter and returns the total number of ways n can be expressed as sum of xth power of unique natural numbers.

Expected Time Complexity: O(n2logn)
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(n)

Constraints:
1 <= n <= 103
1 <= x <= 5
