# Find whether a given integer is a power of 3 or not

Given a positive integer, write a function to find if it is a power of three or not.
Examples:

```Input : 3
Output :Yes

Input :6
Output :No
```

## Recommended: Please solve it on “PRACTICE ” first, before moving on to the solution.

The logic is very simple. Any integer number other than power of 3 which divides highest power of 3 value that integer can hold 3^19 = 1162261467 (Assuming that integers are stored using 32 bits) will give reminder non-zero.

## C++
