C++ program to find maximum possible value for which XORed sum is maximum

C++Server Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have two numbers a and b. We have to find the smallest possible value of (a XOR x) + (b XOR x) for some value of x.

So, if the input is like a = 6; b = 12, then the output will be 10, because if x = 4, then (6 XOR 4) + (12 XOR 4) = 2 + 8 = 10.

Steps

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

return a XOR b

Example

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;

int solve(int a, int b){
   return (a^b);
}
int main(){
   int a = 6;
   int b = 12;
   cout << solve(a, b) << endl;
}

Input

6, 12

Output

10
