Given a number n and a value k, turn of the k’th bit in n.
Input: n = 15, k = 1 Output: 14 Input: n = 15, k = 2 Output: 13 Input: n = 15, k = 3 Output: 11 Input: n = 15, k = 4 Output: 7 Input: n = 15, k >= 5 Output: 15
The idea is to use bitwise <<, & and ~ operators. Using expression "~(1 << (k – 1))“, we get a number which has all bits set, except the k’th bit. If we do bitwise & of this expression with n, we get a number which has all bits same as n except the k’th bit which is 0.
Below is the implementation of above idea.
Exercise: Write a function turnOnK() that turns the k’th bit on.
