Given three integers a, b and N where a and b are the first two terms of the XOR Fibonacci series and the task is to find the Nth term.
The Nth term of the XOR Fibonacci series is defined as F(N) = F(N – 1) ^ F(N – 2) where ^ is the bitwise XOR.
Input: a = 1, b = 2, N = 5
F(0) = 1
F(1) = 2
F(2) = 1 ^ 2 = 3
F(3) = 2 ^ 3 = 1
F(4) = 1 ^ 3 = 2
F(5) = 1 ^ 2 = 3
Input: a = 5, b = 11, N = 1000001
Approach: Since, a ^ a = 0 and it is given that
F(0) = a and F(1) = b
Now, F(2) = F(0) ^ F(1) = a ^ b
And, F(3) = F(1) ^ F(2) = b ^ (a ^ b) = a
F(4) = a ^ b ^ a = b
F(5) = a ^ b
F(6) = a
F(7) = b
F(8) = a ^ b
It can be observed that the answer repeats itself after every 3 numbers. So the answer is F(N % 3) where F(0) = a, F(1) = b and F(2) = a ^ b.
