Given two binary strings perform operation until B > 0 and print the result

  • Last Updated : 01 Jun, 2021

Given two binary strings A and B of length N and M (up to 105). The task is to repeat the below process and find the answer. 
 

Initialize ans = 0
while (B > 0)
    ans += A & B (bitwise AND)
    B = B / 2
print ans

Note: Answer can be very large so print Answer % 1000000007
Examples: 
 

Input: A = "1001", B = "10101"
Output: 11
1001 & 10101 = 1, ans = 1, B = 1010
1001 & 1010 = 8, ans = 9, B = 101
1001 & 101 = 1, ans = 10, B = 10
1001 & 10 = 0, ans = 10, B = 1
1001 & 1 = 1, ans = 11, B = 0

Input: A = "1010", B = "1101"
Output: 12

 

Approach: Since only B is getting affected in all the iterations and dividing a binary number by 2 means right shifting it by 1 bit, it can be observed that a bit in A will only be affected by the set bits in B which are on the left i.e. more significant than the current bit (including the current bit). For example, A = “1001” and B = “10101”, the least significant bit in A will only be affected by the set bits in B i.e. 3 bits in total and the most significant bit in A will only be affected by a single set bit in B i.e. the most significant bit in B as all the other set bits will not affect it in any iteration of the loop while performing bitwise AND, so the final result will be 20 * 3 + 23 * 1 = 3 + 8 = 11.
Below is the implementation of the above approach. 
 

C++




// C++ implementation of the approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
#define ll long long
#define mod (int)(1e9 + 7)
 
// Function to return the required result
ll BitOperations(string a, int n, string b, int m)
{
 
    // Reverse the strings
    reverse(a.begin(), a.end());
    reverse(b.begin(), b.end());
 
    // Count the number of set bits in b
    int c = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < m; i++)
        if (b[i] == '1')
            c++;
 
    // To store the powers of 2
    ll power[n];
    power[0] = 1;
 
    // power[i] = pow(2, i) % mod
    for (int i = 1; i < n; i++)
        power[i] = (power[i - 1] * 2) % mod;
 
    // To store the final answer
    ll ans = 0;
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        if (a[i] == '1') {
 
            // Add power[i] to the ans after
            // multiplying it with the number
            // of set bits in b
            ans += c * power[i];
            if (ans >= mod)
                ans %= mod;
        }
 
        // Divide by 2 means right shift b>>1
        // if b has 1 at right most side than
        // number of set bits will get decreased
        if (b[i] == '1')
            c--;
 
        // If no more set bits in b i.e. b = 0
        if (c == 0)
            break;
    }
 
    // Return the required answer
    return ans;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    string a = "1001", b = "10101";
    int n = a.length(), m = b.length();
 
    cout << BitOperations(a, n, b, m);
 
    return 0;
