# Find value of k-th bit in binary representation

Given a number n and k (1 <= k <= 32), find value of k-th bit in binary representation of n. Bits are numbered from right (Least Significant Bit) to left (Most Significant Bit).

**Examples :**

Input : n = 13, k = 2 Output : 0 Binary representation of 13 is 1101. Second bit from right is 0. Input : n = 14, k = 3 Output : 1 Binary representation of 14 is 1110. Third bit from right is 1.

1) Find a number with all 0s except k-th position. We get this number using ( 1 << (k-1) ). For example if k = 3, then ( 1 << 2) gives us (00..00100).

2) Do bitwise and of above obtained number with n to find if k-th bit in n is set or not.
