**Objective: **Given an array arrA[], find the maximum j – i such that arr[j] > arr[i].**Example**:

int[] arrA = { 12, 3, 1, 5, 6, 4, 10, 9, 8, 0 }; Output: Max(j-i) where j>i and A[j]>A[i] is : 7

**Approach:**

- Create 2 Auxilary Arrays say
*Lmin[] and Rmax[]*of the same size as the main array - Put
*Lmin[0]=0*and*Rmax[Rmax.length-1] =Rmax.length-1* - Traverse the main array and fill the Lmin array with the index position which has the minimum value so far
- Traverse the main array backwords and fill the Rmax array with the index position which has the maximum value so far
- Initialize
*distance_so_far = 0* - Navigate through the main array and if (Lmin[i]<Rmax[i])
- Then check
then*if (Rmax[i]-Lmin[i])>distance_so_far**distance_so_far = Rmax[i]-Lmin[i]* - Return
*distance_so_far*

**Code:**

**Output:**

Max(j-i) where j>i and A[j]>A[i] is : 7
