    Finding numbers higher than the first element in array

    I need help with this program. I'm trying to report all the numbers higher than the first element of the array that the user inputs. It only prints some of the elements higher than the first element but not all of them. Can someone please help me to fix this program?

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    
    int main()
    {
    	// declare variables
    	float a[10];
    	int hold;
    	
    	// get floats from user
    	cout << "What are the floating point numbers?" << endl;
    	
    	for(int i = 0; i < 10; i ++)
    	{
    		cin >> a[i];
    	}
    	
    	// find which numbers have exceeded first elemnet
    	cout << "Numbers that exceed the first element : ";
    	for (int j = 0; j < 10; j++)
    {
    	if (a[j] > a[1])
    	{
    		cout << a[j] << " ";
    	}
    }
    
    	cin >> hold;
    	return 0;
    	
    }

    The first element in your array is a[0], not a[1]. Try that and see if it works.
