BigInteger and() Method in Java

The java.math.BigInteger.and(BigInteger val) method returns a BigInteger whose value is bitwise-AND of two BigIntegers. This method returns a negative number if both of the BigIntegers are negative. The and() method applies bitwise-AND operation upon the current bigInteger and bigInteger passed as parameter.

Syntax:

public BigInteger and(BigInteger val)

Parameters: The method accepts one parameter val of BigInteger type and refers to the value to be AND’ed with the current BigInteger.



Return Value: The method returns the value of bitwise-AND of two BigIntegeres.

Examples:

Input: value1 = 2300, value2 = 3400
Output: 2120
Explanation:
Binary of 2300 = 100011111100
Binary of 3400 = 110101001000
AND of 100011111100 and 110101001000 = 100001001000
Decimal of 100001001000 = 2120.

Input: value1 = 432045, value2 = 321076
Output: 296484
