# Count ways to represent N as XOR of distinct integers not exceeding N

Given a positive integer **N**, the task is to find the number of ways to represent **N **as Bitwise XOR of distinct positive integers less than or equal to **N**.

**Examples:**

Input:N = 5Output:4Explanation:The given number N(= 5) can be represented as:

- 5 = 5
- 5 = (4 ^ 1)
- 5 = (5 ^ 3 ^ 2 ^ 1)
- 5 = (4 ^ 3 ^ 2)
Therefore, the total count is 4.

Input:N = 6Output:8

**Naive Approach:** The simplest approach to solve the problem is to find all subsets of first **N** natural numbers and count those subsets having Bitwise XOR value **N**. After checking for all the subsets, print the total value of the count obtained.

**Time Complexity:** O(N * 2^{N})**Auxiliary Space:** O(1)

**Efficient Approach:** The above approach can be optimized by using the observation that the number of ways to represent **N** as the **Bitwise XOR** of distinct positive integers is given by .

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
