Given a number n, find length of the longest consecutive 1s in its binary representation.

Examples:

Input : n = 14 Output : 3 The binary representation of 14 is1110. Input : n = 222 Output : 4 The binary representation of 222 is 11011110.

We have existing solution for this problem please refer Length of the Longest Consecutive 1s in Binary Representation link. We can solve this problem quickly in python. Approach is very simple,

- Convert decimal number into it’s binary using bin() function and remove starting first two characters ‘0b’ because
**bin()**function returns binary representattion of number in string form and appends ‘0b’ as prefix. - Separate all sub-strings of consecutive 1’s separated by zeros using
**split()**method of string. - Print maximum length of splitted sub-strings of 1’s.
