Container With Most Water(LintCode)

Container With Most Water

Given n non-negative integers a1, a2, ..., an, where each represents a point at coordinate (i, ai)n vertical lines are drawn such that the two endpoints of line i is at (i, ai) and (i, 0). Find two lines, which together with x-axis forms a container, such that the container contains the most water.

Example

Given [1,3,2], the max area of the container is 2.

Note

You may not slant the container.

 

从数组两头遍历,计算面积,然后从小的那一段a开始找到下一个比a大的元素。直到所有数组都被遍历。
