Python Program to Count set bits in an integer
Write an efficient program to count number of 1s in binary representation of an integer.
Input : n = 6 Output : 2 Binary representation of 6 is 110 and has 2 set bits Input : n = 13 Output : 3 Binary representation of 11 is 1101 and has 3 set bits
1. Simple Method Loop through all bits in an integer, check if a bit is set and if it is then increment the set bit count. See below program.
Recursive Approach :
