# Count of pairs in an array such that the highest power of 2 that divides their product is 1

Given an array **arr[]** of **N** positive integers. The task is to find the count of pairs **(arr[i], arr[j])** such that the maximum power of **2** that divides **arr[i] * arr[j]** is **1**.**Examples:**

Input:arr[] = {3, 5, 2, 8}Output:3

(3, 2), (5, 2) and (3, 5) are the only valid pairs.

Since the power of 2 that divides 3 * 2 = 6 is 1,

5 * 2 = 10 is 1 and 3 * 5 = 15 is 0.Input:arr[] = {4, 2, 7, 11, 14, 15, 18}Output:12

**Approach:** As the maximum power of **2** that divides **arr[i] * arr[j]** is at max **1**, it means that if **P** is the product then it must either be **odd** or **2** is the only even factor of **P**.

It implies that both **arr[i]** and **arr[j]** must be **odd** or exactly one of them is **even** and **2** is the only even factor of this number.

If **odd** is the count of odd numbers and **even** is the count of even numbers such that **2** is the only even factor of that number then the answer will be **odd * even + odd * (odd – 1) / 2**.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
