    public boolean canPlaceFlowers(int[] flowerbed, int n) {
    int count=0;
    for(int i=0;i<flowerbed.length;i++) {
    if(flowerbed[i]==0) count++;
    else if(i==flowerbed.length-1 && flowerbed[i]==0 && flowerbed[i-1]==0) count++;
    else if(flowerbed[i]==1) i++;
    else {
    return count>=n ? true:false;
    We try to only forward check by skipping when we get a 1 or can place a new 1 at a position. For example 1,0,0,0,1 we skip checking the second positon because the first position is a 1, simlarly for the third position. Its efficient but not the cleanest code.
