Toggle all odd bits of a number
• Difficulty Level : Medium
• Last Updated : 20 Apr, 2021

Given n number, the task is to toggle odd bit of the number.
Examples:

```Input : 10
Output : 15
binary representation 1 0 1 0
after toggle          1 1 1 1

Input : 20
Output : 1
binary representation 1 0 1 0 0
after toggle          0 0 0 0 1```

1. First generate a number that contains odd position bits.
2. Take XOR with the original number. Note that 1 ^ 1 = 0 and 1 ^ 0 = 1.
Let’s understand this approach with below code.

## C++

 `// Toggle all odd bit of a number``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;`` ` `// Returns a number which has all odd``// bits of n toggled.``int` `evenbittogglenumber(``int` `n)``{``    ``// Genarate number form of 101010...``    ``// ..till of same order as n``    ``int` `res = 0, count = 0;``    ``for` `(``int` `temp = n; temp > 0; temp >>= 1) {`` ` `        ``// if bit is odd, then generate``        ``// number and or with res``        ``if` `(count % 2 == 0)``            ``res |= (1 << count);     `` ` `        ``count++;``    ``}`` ` `    ``// return toggled number``    ``return` `n ^ res;``}`` ` `// Driver code``int` `main()``{``    ``int` `n = 11;``    ``cout << evenbittogglenumber(n);``    ``return` `0;``}`

## Java

 `// Toggle all odd bit of a number` `import` `java.io.*;` `class` `GFG {``    ``// Returns a number which has all odd``    ``// bits of n toggled.``    ``static` `int` `evenbittogglenumber(``int` `n)``    ``{``        ``// Genarate number form of 101010...``        ``// ..till of same order as n``        ``int` `res = ``0``, count = ``0``;``        ``for` `(``int` `temp = n; temp > ``0``; temp >>= ``1``) {``      ` `            ``// if bit is odd, then generate``            ``// number and or with res``            ``if` `(count % ``2` `== ``0``)``                ``res |= (``1` `<< count);     ``      ` `            ``count++;``        ``}``      ` `        ``// return toggled number``        ``return` `n ^ res;``    ``}``      ` `    ``// Driver code``    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[])``    ``{``        ``int` `n = ``11``;``        ``System.out.println(evenbittogglenumber(n));``    ``}``}` `/*This code is contributed by Nikita tiwari.*/``    ` `   `
