Given a number N ( maybe up to 10^9 ). The task is to find the sum of first N natural number taking powers of 2 as a negative number.
Input: N = 4 Output: -4 - 1 - 2 + 3 - 4 = -4 1, 2, and 4 are the powers of two. Input: N = 5 Output: 1
Approach: An efficient solution is to store the powers of two in an array and then store presum of this array in another array. This array size can be at most 30. So, normally search for the first element in the power array which is greater than the given number.
Below is the implementation of above approach:
$ans -= 2 * $pre[$i – 1];
// Driver code
// function call
$n = 4;
// function call
