Number of elements that can be seen from right side

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 code``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `n = 6;``    ``int` `height[] = { 4, 8, 2, 0, 0, 5 };``    ``cout << numberOfElements(height, n);``    ``return` `0;``}`
