Find the number obtained after concatenation of binary representation of M and N
  • Last Updated : 27 Nov, 2020

Given two integers M and N the task is to find the number formed by concatenating the binary equivalents of M and N i.e. M + N.

Examples: 

Input: M = 4, N = 5 
Output: 37 
Binary equivalent of 4 is 100 and for 5 it is 101 
after concatenation, the resultant binary number 
formed is 100101 whose decimal equivalent is 37.

Input: M = 3, N = 4 
Output: 28 

Approach: Convert both the numbers M and N into there binary equivalents then concatenate these numbers as M + N and print the decimal equivalent of the resulting binary number formed after concatenation.



Below is the implementation of the above approach:

Output

37

The time complexity of above solution is O(log(m) + log(n)).

We can improve the time complexity for above problem to O(log(n)) by using binary shift operators.

Better Approach

We will binary shift the number M to left by the number of bits in n.

For example:

M=4, N=5



bin(N) = 101 which has binary representation three.

We will left binary shift M by 3 and then add N.

M<<3 + N = 37.

As binary shift operators take constant time so second step is done in constant time and overall time complexity is O(log(N)).
