Toggle first and last bits of a number

Given a number n, the task is to toggle only first and last bits of a number

Examples :

Input : 10
Output : 3
Binary representation of 10 is
1010. After toggling first and
last bits, we get 0011.

Input : 15
Output : 6



Prerequisite : Find MSB of given number.

1) Generate a number which contains first and last bit as set. We need to change all middle bits to 0 and keep corner bits as 1.

2) Answer is XOR of generated number and original number.
