2327. Number of People Aware of a Secret

Medium

664

104

On day `1`

, one person discovers a secret.

You are given an integer `delay`

, which means that each person will **share** the secret with a new person **every day**, starting from `delay`

days after discovering the secret. You are also given an integer `forget`

, which means that each person will **forget** the secret `forget`

days after discovering it. A person **cannot** share the secret on the same day they forgot it, or on any day afterwards.

Given an integer `n`

, return* the number of people who know the secret at the end of day *`n`

. Since the answer may be very large, return it **modulo** `10`

.^{9} + 7
