 In this post, we will learn how to solve LeetCode's Maximum Width Ramp Problem and will implement its solution in Java.

Maximum Width Ramp Problem

Given an array A of integers, a ramp is a tuple (i, j) for which i < j and A[i] <= A[j].  The width of such a ramp is j - i. Find the maximum width of a ramp in A.  If one doesn't exist, return 0.

Example 1:
Input: [6,0,8,2,1,5]
Output: 4
The maximum width ramp is achieved at (i, j) = (1, 5): A[1] = 0 and A[5] = 5.

Example 2:
Input: [9,8,1,0,1,9,4,0,4,1]
Output: 7
The maximum width ramp is achieved at (i, j) = (2, 9): A[2] = 1 and A[9] = 1.

Maximum Width Ramp Java Solution

Approach 1

Brute Force Solution.

Note: This might give you a time limit error.

Java Program: 

class Solution {
    public int maxWidthRamp(int[] A) {
        int max_width = 0;
        for(int i=0; i<A.length; i++){
            for(int j= A.length-1; j>i; j--){
                    max_width = Math.max(max_width, j-i);
        return max_width;

Approach 2

Using Stack. 

Time Complexity: O(N log N).

Space Complexity: O(N).

Java Program: 

class Solution {
    public int maxWidthRamp(int[] A) {
        //using stack
        Stack<Integer> st = new Stack<Integer>();
        for(int i=1; i<A.length; i++){
        int len = 0;
        for(int i = A.length-1; i>len ; i--){
            while(!st.empty() && A[st.peek()] <= A[i]){
                len = Math.max(len, i-st.pop());
        return len;
