Problem 2405. The Number of Ways

Find all the possible ways to reach the end of a matrix. So given

[a b
 c d] 

the possible ways [a c],[a d],[b c],[b d] as inputs p the number of rows and n the number of column. You will produce a matrix by using these two input inputs. The matrix starts with 1 and increases left to right. The last number in the matrix will be n*p. After that you find the possible ways to reach end of the matrix

Example 1

p = 2; the number of rows 
n = 2; the number of columns
will produce this output matrix 
[1 2 
 3 4]

Possible ways are [1 3],[1 4],[2 3],[2 4]

 output =
     1     3
     1     4
     2     3
     2     4

Example 2

 p = 4;
 n = 2;

These produce the matrix

 [1 2
  3 4
  5 6
  7 8]

Possible ways are [1 3 5 7], [1 3 5 8],...,[2 4 6 8]

 output =
     1     3     5     7
     1     3     5     8
     1     3     6     7
     1     3     6     8
     1     4     5     7
     1     4     5     8
     1     4     6     7
     1     4     6     8
     2     3     5     7
     2     3     5     8
     2     3     6     7
     2     3     6     8
     2     4     5     7
     2     4     5     8
     2     4     6     7
     2     4     6     8
