Set all even bits of a number

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 03 May, 2021

Given a number, the task is to set all even bit of a number. Positions of bits are counted from LSB (least significant bit) to MSB (Most significant bit). Position of LSB is considered as 1.

Examples : 

Input : 20 
Output : 30
Binary representation of 20 is
10100. After setting
even bits, we get 11110

Input : 10
Output : 10

Method 1:- 
1. First generate a number that contains even position bits. 
2. Take OR with the original number. Note that 1 | 1 = 1 and 1 | 0 = 1.

Let’s understand this approach with below code.

C++




// Simple CPP program to set all even
// bits of a number
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
 
// Sets even bits of n and returns
// modified number.
int evenbitsetnumber(int n)
{
    // Generate 101010...10 number and
    // store in res.
    int count = 0, res = 0;
    for (int temp = n; temp > 0; temp >>= 1) {
 
        // if bit is even then generate
        // number and or with res
        if (count % 2 == 1)
            res |= (1 << count);
 
        count++;
    }
 
    // return OR number
    return (n | res);
}
 
int main()
{
    int n = 10;
    cout << evenbitsetnumber(n);
    return 0;
}

Java




// Simple Java program to set all even
// bits of a number
class GFG
{
    // Sets even bits of n and returns
    // modified number.
    static int evenbitsetnumber(int n)
    {
        // Generate 101010...10 number and
        // store in res.
        int count = 0, res = 0;
        for (int temp = n; temp > 0; temp >>= 1) {
            
            // if bit is even then generate
            // number and or with res
            if (count % 2 == 1)
            res |= (1 << count);
 
        count++;
        }
         
        // return OR number
        return (n | res);
         
    }
     
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        int n = 4;
         System.out.println(evenbitsetnumber(n));
    }
}

def evenbitsetnumber(n):

    count = 0
    res = 0
    temp = n
    while(temp > 0):
 
        # if bit is even then generate
        # number and or with res
        if (count % 2 == 1):
            res |= (1 << count)
 
        count+=1
        temp >>= 1
         
    # return OR number
    return (n | res)
 
n = 10
