Given a non-negative integer N. The task is to invert the bits of the number N and print the decimal equivalent of the number obtained after inverting the bits.
Note: Leading 0’s are not being considered.
Input : 11 Output : 4 (11)10 = (1011)2 After inverting the bits, we get: (0100)2 = (4)10. Input : 20 Output : 11 (20)10 = (10100)2. After inverting the bits, we get: (01011)2 = (11)10.
The similar problem is already discussed in Invert actual bits of a number.
In this article, an efficient approach using bitwise operators is discussed. Below is the step by step algorithm to solve the problem:
- Calculate the total number of bits in the given number. This can be done by calculating:
X = log2N
Where, N is the given number and X is the total number of bits of N.
- The next step is to generate a number with X bits and all bits set. That is, 11111….X-times. This can be done by calculating:
Step-1: M = 1 << X Step-2: M = M | (M-1)
Where M is the required X-bit number with all bits set.
- The final step is to calculate the bit-wise XOR of M with N, which will be our answer.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
# Python3 program to invert actual
# bits of a number.
# Function to invert bits of a number
# Calculate number of bits of N-1
x = int(math.log(n, 2))
m = 1 << x m = m | m - 1 n = n ^ m return n # Driver code n = 20 print(invertBits(n)) # This code is contributed 29AjayKumar [tabby title="C#"]
