Number of elements that can be seen from right side

• Difficulty Level : Easy
• Last Updated : 26 Mar, 2021

Given an array of integers, consider the elements as the height of the building, find the number of buildings that can be seen from the right side.
Examples:

Input : height[] = {2, 6, 2, 4, 0, 1}
Output : 3
we can see only 3 building i.e with height 1, 4 and 6.

Input : height[] = {4, 8, 2, 0, 0, 5}
Output : 2

Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

This problem seems to be finding longest increasing sub sequence from right but actually it is not.We have to just increase the count if we encounter any building with greater height found so far.
Below is the implementation of above approach.

C++

 // CPP program to find number of elements// that can be seen from right side.#include using namespace std; int numberOfElements(int height[], int n){    int max_so_far = 0;    int coun = 0;     for (int i = n - 1; i >= 0; i--) {        if (height[i] > max_so_far) {            max_so_far = height[i];            coun++;        }    }    return coun;} // Driver codeint main(){    int n = 6;    int height[] = { 4, 8, 2, 0, 0, 5 };    cout << numberOfElements(height, n);    return 0;}

Java

 // Java program to find number of elements// that can be seen from right side.import java.util.*;class Solution{  static int numberOfElements(int height[], int n){    int max_so_far = 0;    int coun = 0;      for (int i = n - 1; i >= 0; i--) {        if (height[i] > max_so_far) {            max_so_far = height[i];            coun++;        }    }    return coun;} // Driver codepublic static void main(String args[]){    int n = 6;    int height[] = { 4, 8, 2, 0, 0, 5 };    System.out.println( numberOfElements(height, n));   } }//contributed by Arnab Kundu
