PROBLEM STATEMENT
There are several skyscrapers arranged in a row. You're interested in finding the one from which
the maximal number of other skyscrapers can be seen. The i-th skyscraper can be represented as a
line segment on a plane with endpoints (i, 0) and (i, heights[i]). A skyscraper can be seen from
the roof of another skyscraper if a line segment connecting their roofs does not intersect with or
touch any other skyscraper. Return the maximal number of other skyscrapers that can be seen from
the roof of some skyscraper.
DEFINITION
Class:BestView
Method:numberOfBuildings
Parameters:vector
Returns:int
Method signature:int numberOfBuildings(vector heights)
CONSTRAINTS
-heights will contain between 1 and 50 elements, inclusive.
-Each element of heights will be between 1 and 1,000,000,000, inclusive.
EXAMPLES
0)
{10}
Returns: 0
There's only a single skyscraper, so you can see no other skyscrapers from its roof.
1)
{5,5,5,5}
Returns: 2
From each skyscraper, you can only see its adjacent neighbors.
2)
{1,2,7,3,2}
Returns: 4
You can see all the other skyscrapers from the central one.
3)
{1,5,3,2,6,3,2,6,4,2,5,7,3,1,5}
Returns: 7
You can see seven skyscrapers from the skyscraper with height 7:
4)

Returns: 6
You can see 6 skyscrapers from the skyscraper with height 999999996 - the nearest one to the left
and all 5 skyscrapers to the right.
