Find smallest positive number Y such that Bitwise AND of X and Y is Zero

Given an integer X. The task is to find the smallest positive number Y(> 0) such that X AND Y is zero.

Examples:

Input : X = 3
Output : 4
4 is the samllest positive number whose bitwise AND with 3 is zero



Input : X = 10
Output : 1

Approach :
There are 2 cases :

  • If the binary representation of X contains all 1s, in that case, all the bits of Y should be 0 to make the result of AND operation is zero. Then X+1 is our answer which is the first positive integer.
  • If the binary representation of X doesn’t contain all 1s, in that case, find the first position in X at which bit is 0. Then our answer will be power(2, position)

Below is the implementation of the above approach :
