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

Input : n = 4
Output : Yes
22 = 4

Input : n = 7
Output : No

Input : n = 32
Output : Yes
25 = 32

1. A simple method for this is to simply take the log of the number on base 2 and if you get an integer then the number is the power of 2

C++




// C++ Program to find whether a
// no is power of two
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to check if x is power of 2
bool isPowerOfTwo(int n)
{
   if(n==0)
   return false;
 
   return (ceil(log2(n)) == floor(log2(n)));
}
 
// Driver program
int main()
{
    isPowerOfTwo(31)? cout<<"Yes"<<endl: cout<<"No"<<endl;
    isPowerOfTwo(64)? cout<<"Yes"<<endl: cout<<"No"<<endl;
 
    return 0;
}

{
   if(n==0)
   return false;
 
   return (ceil(log2(n)) == floor(log2(n)));
}
 
// Driver program
int main()
{
    isPowerOfTwo(31)? printf("Yes\n"): printf("No\n");

    return 0;

2. Another solution is to keep dividing the number by two, i.e, do n = n/2 iteratively. In any iteration, if n%2 becomes non-zero and n is not 1 then n is not a power of 2. If n becomes 1 then it is a power of 2.

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;

        return 0;
    while (n != 1)
    {
        if (n%2 != 0)
            return 0;
        n = n/2;
    }
    return 1;

    isPowerOfTwo(31)? cout<<"Yes\n": cout<<"No\n";

3. Another way is to use this simple recursive solution. It uses the same logic as the above iterative solution but uses recursion instead of iteration. 

C++




// C++ program for above approach
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function which checks whether a number is a power of 2
bool powerOf2(int n)
{
    // base cases
    // '1' is the only odd number which is a power of 2(2^0)
    if (n == 1)
        return true;
 
    // all other odd numbers are not powers of 2
    else if (n % 2 != 0 || n == 0)
        return false;
 
    // recursive function call
    return powerOf2(n / 2);
}
 
// Driver Code
int main()
{
    int n = 64; // True
    int m = 12; // False
 
    if (powerOf2(n) == 1)
        cout << "True" << endl;
 
    else
        cout << "False" << endl;
 
    if (powerOf2(m) == 1)
        cout << "True" << endl;
 
    else
        cout << "False" << endl;
}

4. All power of two numbers has only a one-bit set. So count the no. of set bits and if you get 1 then the number is a power of 2. Please see Count set bits in an integer for counting set bits.

    while (n > 0) {
        if ((n & 1) == 1) {
            cnt++;
        }
        n = n >> 1;// keep dividing n by 2 using right

5. If we subtract a power of 2 numbers by 1 then all unset bits after the only set bit become set; and the set bit becomes unset.
For example for 4 ( 100) and 16(10000), we get the following after subtracting 1 
3 –> 011 
15 –> 01111

So, if a number n is a power of 2 then bitwise & of n and n-1 will be zero. We can say n is a power of 2 or not based on the value of n&(n-1). The expression n&(n-1) will not work when n is 0. To handle this case also, our expression will become n& (!n&(n-1)) (thanks to https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/program-to-find-whether-a-no-is-power-of-two/Mohammad for adding this case). 

Below is the implementation of this method.

6. Another way is to use the logic to find the rightmost bit set of a given number.

C++




#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
 
/* Function to check if x is power of 2*/
bool isPowerofTwo(long long n)
{
    if (n == 0)
        return 0;
    if ((n & (~(n - 1))) == n)
        return 1;
    return 0;
}
/*Driver code*/
int main()
{
 
    isPowerofTwo(30) ? cout << "Yes\n" : cout << "No\n";
    isPowerofTwo(128) ? cout << "Yes\n" : cout << "No\n";
    return 0;
}

            return false;
        if ((n & (~(n - 1))) == n)
            return true;
        return false;
    }

7.  Brian Kernighan’s algorithm ( Efficient Method )

Approach :

As we know that the number which will be the power of two have only one set bit , therefore when we do bitwise and with the number which is just less than the number which can be represented as the power of (2) then the result will be 0 . 

Example : 4 can be represented as (2^2 ) , 

             (4 & 3)=0  or in binary (100 & 011=0)

Here is the code of the given approach :

C++




// C++ program to check whether the given number is power of
// 2
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
/* Function to check if x is power of 2*/
bool isPowerofTwo(long long n)
{
    return (n != 0) && ((n & (n - 1)) == 0);
}
/*Driver code*/
int main()
{
    isPowerofTwo(30) ? cout << "Yes\n" : cout << "No\n";
    isPowerofTwo(128) ? cout << "Yes\n" : cout << "No\n";
    return 0;
}

  }
