# JavaScript: Power of four

## JavaScript Math: Exercise-108 with Solution

Write a JavaScript program to check whether a given integer is a Power of four not.

In arithmetic and algebra, the fourth power of a number n is the result of multiplying four instances of n together. So: n^{4} = n × n × n × n

Fourth powers are also formed by multiplying a number by its cube. Furthermore, they are squares of squares.

The sequence of fourth powers of integers (also known as biquadrates or tesseractic numbers) is:

0, 1, 16, 81, 256, 625, 1296, 2401, 4096, 6561, 10000, 14641, 20736, 28561, 38416, 50625, 65536, 83521, 104976, 130321, 160000, 194481, 234256, 279841, 331776, 390625, 456976, 531441, 614656, 707281, 810000, ...

**Test Data:**

(16) -> true

(4096) -> true

(36) -> false

**Sample Solution:**

**HTML Code:**

```
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>JavaScript program to Power of four or not</title>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>
```

**Solution-1**

**JavaScript Code:**

```
function test(n) {
if (n < 1) {
return false;
}
while (n % 4 === 0) {
n = n / 4;
}
return n === 1;
}
n = 16
console.log("Number n = " +n)
console.log("Check the said number is power of four or not? "+test(n));
n = 4096
console.log("Number n = " +n)
console.log("Check the said number is power of four or not? "+test(n));
n = 36
console.log("Number n = " +n)
console.log("Check the said number is power of four or not? "+test(n));
```

Sample Output:

Number n = 16 Check the said number is power of four or not? true Number n = 4096 Check the said number is power of four or not? true Number n = 36 Check the said number is power of four or not? false

**Solution-2**

**JavaScript Code:**

```
function test(n) {
if(n === 1 || n === 4) return true
if(n < 4) return false
return test(n/4)
}
n = 16
console.log("Number n = " +n)
console.log("Check the said number is power of four or not? "+test(n));
n = 4096
console.log("Number n = " +n)
console.log("Check the said number is power of four or not? "+test(n));
n = 36
console.log("Number n = " +n)
console.log("Check the said number is power of four or not? "+test(n));
```

Sample Output:

Number n = 16 Check the said number is power of four or not? true Number n = 4096 Check the said number is power of four or not? true Number n = 36 Check the said number is power of four or not? false

## JavaScript: Tips of the Day

**Shorten an array using its length property**

A great way of shortening an array is by redefining its length property.

let array = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 8, 9] array.length = 4 // Result: [0, 1, 2, 3]

Important to know though is that this is a destructive way of changing the array. This means you lose all the other values that used to be in the array.
