Array containing power of 2 whose XOR and Sum of elements equals X

  • Last Updated : 06 May, 2021

Given an integer X. The task is to find and return the array containing of powers of 2’s and the xor of the array is X.
Examples: 
 

Input: X = 20 
Output: 16 4
Input: X = 15 
Output: 1 2 4 8 
 

 

Approach: The answer lies in the binary representation of the number X.
Since in the power of 2, there is only one set bit. If there are two distinct powers of 2’s present then the xor will be the addition of both the numbers.
Similarly, if xor of the whole array will be taken then it should be equal to X and that will be the binary representation of that number.
Since there is a distinct set bit in every power of 2’s, the xor and the sum of the elements of the array will be the same.
Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ implementation of the above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to return the required array
vector<long> getArray(int n)
{
    vector<long> ans;
 
    // Store the power of 2
    long p2 = 1;
 
    // while n is greater than 0
    while (n > 0) {
         
        // if there is 1 in binary
        // representation
        if (n & 1)
            ans.push_back(p2);
 
        // Divide n by 2
        // Multiply p2 by 2
        n >>= 1;
        p2 *= 2;
    }
 
    return ans;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    long n = 15;
 
    // Get the answer
    vector<long> ans = getArray(n);
 
    // Printing the array
    for(int i : ans)
        cout << i << " ";
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java implementation implementation
// of the above approach
import java.util.*;
class GFG
{
 
// Function to return the required array
static Vector<Long> getArray(int n)
{
    Vector<Long> ans = new Vector<Long>();
 
    // Store the power of 2
    long p2 = 1;
 
    // while n is greater than 0
    while (n > 0)
    {
         
        // if there is 1 in binary
        // representation
        if (n % 2 == 1)
            ans.add(p2);
 
        // Divide n by 2
        // Multiply p2 by 2
        n >>= 1;
        p2 *= 2;
    }
    return ans;
}
 
// Driver code
public static void main(String[] args)
{
    int n = 15;
 
    // Get the answer
    Vector<Long> ans = getArray(n);
 
    // Printing the array
    for(Long i : ans)
        System.out.print(i + " ");
}
}
