# Bitwise AND of all the elements of array

• Difficulty Level : Medium
• Last Updated : 13 Apr, 2021

Given an array, arr[] of N integers, the task is to find out the bitwise AND(&) of all the elements of the array.

Examples:

Input: arr[] = {1, 3, 5, 9, 11}
Output: 1

Input: arr[] = {3, 7, 11, 19, 11}
Output:

Approach: The idea is to traverse all the array elements and compute the bitwise AND for all the elements and print the result obtained.

Below is the implementation of above approach:

## C++14

 `// C++ program to find bitwise AND``// of all the elements in the array``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;`` ` `int` `find_and(``int` `arr[], ``int` `len){``         ` `    ``// Initialise ans variable is arr``    ``int` `ans = arr;`` ` `    ``// Traverse the array compute AND``    ``for` `(``int` `i = 0; i < len; i++){``        ``ans = (ans&arr[i]);``    ``}``    ``// Return ans``    ``return` `ans;``}` `// Driver function``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `arr[] = {1, 3, 5, 9, 11};``    ``int` `n = ``sizeof``(arr) / ``sizeof``(arr);` `    ``// Function Call to find AND``    ``cout << find_and(arr, n);``    ``return` `0;``}` `// This code is contributed by sapnasingh4991`

## Java

 `// Java program to find bitwise AND``// of all the elements in the array``import` `java.util.*;``class` `GFG{``// Function to calculate bitwise AND``    ``static` `int` `find_and(``int` `arr[]){``        ` `        ``// Initialise ans variable is arr``        ``int` `ans = arr[``0``];``        ` `        ``// Traverse the array compute AND``        ``for` `(``int` `i=``0``;i

## Python3

 `# Python program to find bitwise AND``# of all the elements in the array` `# Function to calculate bitwise AND``def` `find_and(arr):``    ` `    ``# Initialise ans variable is arr``    ``ans ``=` `arr[``0``]``    ` `    ``# Traverse the array compute AND``    ``for` `i ``in` `range``(``1``, ``len``(arr)):``        ``ans ``=` `ans&arr[i]``        ` `    ``# Return ans``    ``return` `ans``    ` `# Driver Code``if` `__name__ ``=``=` `'__main__'``:``    ``arr ``=` `[``1``, ``3``, ``5``, ``9``, ``11``]``    ` `    ``# Function Call to find AND``    ``print``(find_and(arr))`

## C#

 `// C# program to find bitwise AND``// of all the elements in the array``using` `System;``class` `GFG{``// Function to calculate bitwise AND``    ``static` `int` `find_and(``int``[] arr){``        ` `        ``// Initialise ans variable is arr``        ``int` `ans = arr;``        ` `        ``// Traverse the array compute AND``        ``for` `(``int` `i=0;i
