Given a binary matrix **M **of size **n X m**. Find the maximum area of a rectangle formed only of **1s** in the given matrix.

**Example 1:**

Input:n = 4, m = 4 M[][] = {{0 1 1 0}, {1 1 1 1}, {1 1 1 1}, {1 1 0 0}}Output:8Explanation:For the above test case the matrix will look like 0 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 the max size rectangle is 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 and area is 4 *2 = 8.

**Your Task: **

Your task is to complete the function **maxArea** which returns the maximum size rectangle area in a binary-sub-matrix with all 1’s. The function takes 3 arguments the first argument is the Matrix M[ ] [ ] and the next two are two integers n and m which denotes the size of the matrix M.

**Expected Time Complexity** : O(n*m)

**Expected Auixiliary Space** : O(m)

**Constraints:**

1<=n,m<=1000

0<=M[][]<=1

**Note:**The **Input/Ouput** format and **Example** given are used for system's internal purpose, and should be used by a user for **Expected Output** only. As it is a function problem, hence a user should not read any input from stdin/console. The task is to complete the function specified, and not to write the full code.

Here is some troubleshooting advice:

- Reset the IDE using the second button on the top right corner.
- Avoid using static/global variables in your code as your code is tested against multiple test cases and these tend to retain their previous values.
- Passing the Sample/Custom Test cases does not guarantee the correctness of code. On submission, your code is tested against multiple test cases consisting of all possible corner cases and stress constraints.
- You can access the hints to get an idea about what is expected of you as well as the final solution code.
- You can view the solutions submitted by other users from the submission tab.
