Java: Tips of the Day


Checks if a value is positive power of two.

To understand how it works let's assume we made a call IsPowerOfTwo(4).

As value is greater than 0, so right side of the && operator will be evaluated.

The result of (~value + 1) is equal to value itself. ~100 + 001 => 011 + 001 => 100. This is equal to value.

The result of (value & value) is value. 100 & 100 => 100.

This will value the expression to true as value is equal to value.

public static boolean isPowerOfTwo(final int value) {
    return value > 0 && ((value & (~value + 1)) == value);
