Java Exercises: Find the number of bits required to flip to convert two given integers

Java Basic: Exercise-147 with Solution

Write a Java program to find the number of bits required to flip to convert two given integers.

Example: 27 --> 11011
23--> 10111

Sample Solution:

Java Code:

public class Solution {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println(bitSwapRequired(27, 23));
    }

      public static int bitSwapRequired(int x, int y) {
        int ctr = 0;
        for (int z = x ^ y; z != 0; z = z >>> 1) {
            ctr += z & 1;
        }
        return ctr;
    }
}

Sample Output:
