# Convert X into Y by repeatedly multiplying X with 2 or appending 1 at the end

Given two positive integers **X** and **Y**, the task is to check if it is possible to convert the number **X** into **Y**, either by multiplying **X** by **2** or appending** 1** at the end of **X**. If it is possible to convert **X** into **Y**, then print **“Yes”**. Otherwise, print **“No”**.

**Examples:**

Input:X = 100, Y = 40021Output:YesExplanation:

Below are the operations performed to convert X into Y:Operation 1:Multiply X(= 100) by 2, modifies the value X to 200.Operation 2:Append 1 at the end of X(= 200), modifies the value X to 2001.Operation 3:Multiply X(= 2001) by 2, modifies the value X to 4002.Operation 4:Append 1 at the end of X(= 4002), modifies the value X to 40021.

Therefore, from the above operations, it can be seen that the value X can be converted into Y. Hence, print Yes.

Input:X = 17 and Y = 35Output:No

**Approach:** The given problem can be solved by performing the operations in the reverse way i.e., try to convert the value **Y** into **X**. Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

- Iterate until the value of
**Y**is greater than**X**and perform the following steps:- If the value of the last digit of
**Y**is 1, then divide the value of**Y**by**10**. - Otherwise, if the value of
**Y**is divisible by 2, then divide**Y**by**2**. - Otherwise, break out of the loop.

- If the value of the last digit of
- After completing the above steps, if the value of
**Y**is the same as the value of**X**, then print**Yes**. Otherwise, print**No**.
