# C++ program to count minimum how many minutes after there will be no new angry students

Suppose we have a string S of length n, with only two types of characters, 'A' or 'P'. There are n students in a row, the ith student is angry if S[i] = 'A', if it is 'P' it says S[i] is patient. An angry student at index i will hit patient student in index i+1 in every minute, and for the last student even it he is angry, he cannot hit anyone. After hitting a patient student, that student also gets angry. We have to find the minimum minutes for after that no new students get angry.

So, if the input is like S = "PPAPP", then the output will be 2, because after first minute, the string will be "PPAAP", then in second minute "PPAAA", then no new student gets angry again.

## Steps

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

n := size of S ans := 0, cnt = 0 for initialize i := n - 1, when i >= 0, update (decrease i by 1), do: if S[i] is same as 'P', then: (increase cnt by 1) Otherwise ans := maximum of ans and cnt cnt := 0 return ans

## Example

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

#include <bits/stdc++.h> using namespace std; int solve(string S) { int n = S.size(); int ans = 0, cnt = 0; for (int i = n - 1; i >= 0; i--) { if (S[i] == 'P') { cnt++; } else { ans = max(ans, cnt); cnt = 0; } } return ans; } int main() { string S = "PPAPP"; cout << solve(S) << endl; }

## Input

PPAPP

## Output

2
