This is a very classical dynamic programming problem.

Let \(dp[x]\) denote whether it is possible to make a sum of \(x\) using the given coins.

\(dp[x]\) would be true if any of \(dp[x-c_i]\) is true.

Thus, after computing the DP table, we can check \(dp[S]\) to determine whether we can make a sum of \(S\) or not.

Time Complexity: \(\mathcal{O}(SN)\)
