Count numbers from a given range having same first and last digits in their binary representation
  • Last Updated : 14 Jan, 2021

Given two integers L and R, the task is to find the count of numbers in the range [L, R] whose first and last digit in the binary representation are the same.

Examples:

Input: L = 1, R = 5
Output: 3
Explanation:
(1)10 = (1)2
(2)10 = (10)2
(3)10 = (11)2
(4)10 = (100)2
(5)10 = (101)2
Therefore, 1, 3, 5 has the same first and last digits in their binary representation.

Input: L = 6, R = 30
Output: 12

Naive Approach: The simplest approach is to iterate over the range L to R and find the binary representation of all the numbers and check for each of them, if the first and the last digit in their binary representation is the same or not. 
Time Complexity: O((R-L)log(R-L))
Auxiliary Space: O(1)

Efficient Approach: The given problem can be solved based on the following observations:

    if (R % 2 != 0 || L % 2 != 0)
        count += 1;
 
    cout << count << endl;
