# 1 to n bit numbers with no consecutive 1s in binary representation

Given a number n, our task is to find all 1 to n bit numbers with no consecutive 1s in their binary representation.

**Examples :-**

Input : n = 4 Output : 1 2 4 5 8 9 10 These are numbers with 1 to 4 bits and no consecutive ones in binary representation. Input : n = 3 Output : 1 2 4 5

1) There will be 2^{n} numbers with number of bits from 1 to n.

2) Iterate through all 2^{n} numbers. For every number check if it contains consecutive set bits or not. To check, we do bit wise and of current number i and left shifted i. If the bitwise and contains a non-zero bit (or its value is non-zero), then given number doesn’t contain consecutive set bits.

## C++

`// Print all numbers upto n bits ` `// with no consecutive set bits. ` `#include<iostream> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `void` `printNonConsecutive(` `int` `n) ` `{ ` ` ` `// Let us first compute ` ` ` `// 2 raised to power n. ` ` ` `int` `p = (1 << n); ` ` ` ` ` `// loop 1 to n to check ` ` ` `// all the numbers ` ` ` `for` `(` `int` `i = 1; i < p; i++) ` ` ` ` ` `// A number i doesn't contain ` ` ` `// consecutive set bits if ` ` ` `// bitwise and of i and left ` ` ` `// shifted i do't contain a ` ` ` `// commons set bit. ` ` ` `if` `((i & (i << 1)) == 0) ` ` ` `cout << i << ` `" "` `; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `int` `n = 3; ` ` ` `printNonConsecutive(n); ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |

Complexity O(2^n) because ‘for’ loop is run 2^n time.

Output:

1 2 4 5
