BigInteger xor() Method in Java
• Last Updated : 30 Oct, 2019

Prerequisite: BigInteger Basics
The xor(BigInteger val) method returns bitwise-XOR of two bigIntegers. This method returns a negative BigInteger if and only if exactly one of the current bigInteger and the bigInteger passed in parameter id negative. The xor() method of BigInteger class apply bitwise-XOR operation upon the current BigInteger and BigInteger passed as parameter.

Syntax:

`public BigInteger xor(BigInteger val)`

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

Return Value: The method returns returns bitwise-XOR of the current BigInteger with the BigInteger val.

Examples:

```Input: value1 = 2300 , value2 = 3400
Output: 1460
Explanation:
Binary of 2300 = 100011111100
Binary of 3400 = 110101001000
XOR of 100011111100 and 110101001000 = 10110110100
Decimal of 10110110100 = 1460.

Input: value1 = 54298 , value2 = 64257
Output: 12059
```
