# Bitwise AND of all the elements of array

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: 3

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

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++

 `// 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

## Python

 `# 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

Output:

```1
