Given a binary array, find length of the longest subsequence such that there is no 0 after a 1.
Input : 1 1 0 1 Output : 3 Explanation : If we remove 0 from the array, then no zero comes right after one (satisfying the condition) and the maximum game left are 3 (i.e. 1 1 1) Input : 0 Output : 1 Explanation : Since he wants to save maximum game in the array. He doesn't remove any game.
Let’s find out how many zeros will be in this sequence and then take all ones which come after the last zero. On each step take the next zero from the beginning of the sequence and count ones after it. Update answer with the maximum value.
You can pre-calculate number of ones on suffix.
E.g. 0 1 0 0 1 1 1
After calculating the suffix the array becomes :
0 4 0 0 3 2 1
Move from start to end and each time zero is found in the array increment numberofzeros by 1. If the array[index] not zero then res = max(res, numberofzeros + value of array at that index).
And then after the loop : res = max(res, numberofzeros)
