XOR of all elements of array with set bits equal to K

  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 29 Apr, 2021

Given an array of integers and a number K. The task is to find the XOR of only those elements of the array whose total set bits are equal to K. 
Examples
 

Input : arr[] = {1, 22, 3, 10}, K=1
Output : 1
Elements with set bits equal to 1 is 1.
So, XOR is also 1.

Input : arr[] = {3, 4, 10, 5, 8}, K=2
Output : 12

 

Approach: 
 

  1. Initialize an empty vector.
  2. Traverse the array form left to right and check the set bits of each element.
  3. Use, C++ inbuilt function __builtin_popcount() to count setbits.
  4. Push the elements with K setbits into the vector.
  5. Finally find XOR of all the elements of the vector.

Below is the implementation of the above approach: 
 

C++




// C++ program to find Xor
// of all elements with set bits
// equal to K
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find Xor
// of desired elements
int xorGivenSetBits(int arr[], int n, int k)
{
    // Initialize vector
    vector<int> v;
 
    for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
        if (__builtin_popcount(arr[i]) == k) {
            // push required elements
            v.push_back(arr[i]);
        }
    }
 
    // Initialize result with first element of vector
    int result = v[0];
 
    for (int i = 1; i < v.size(); i++)
        result = result ^ v[i];
 
    return result;
}
 
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int arr[] = { 2, 13, 1, 19, 7 };
    int n = sizeof(arr) / sizeof(arr[0]);
    int k = 3;
 
    cout << xorGivenSetBits(arr, n, k);
 
    return 0;
}

Java




// Java program to find Xor
// of all elements with set bits
// equal to K
import java.util.*;
 
class GFG
{
 
    // Function to find Xor
    // of desired elements
    static int xorGivenSetBits(int arr[],
                                int n, int k)
    {
        // Initialize vector
        Vector<Integer> v = new Vector<>();
 
        for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
        {
            if (Integer.bitCount(arr[i]) == k)
            {
                // push required elements
                v.add(arr[i]);
            }
        }
 
        // Initialize result with first element of vector
        int result = v.get(0);
 
        for (int i = 1; i < v.size(); i++)
        {
            result = result ^ v.get(i);
        }
 
        return result;
    }
 
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        int arr[] = {2, 13, 1, 19, 7};
        int n = arr.length;
        int k = 3;
        System.out.println(xorGivenSetBits(arr, n, k));
    }
}
