# Number of integers with odd number of set bits

Given a number n, count number of integers smaller than or equal to n that have odd number of set bits.

Examples:

```Input : 5
Output : 3
Explanation :
Integers with odd number of
set bits in range 1 to 5 :
0 contains 0 set bits
1 contains 1 set bits
2 contains 1 set bits
3 contains 2 set bits
4 contains 1 set bits
5 contains 2 set bits

Input : 10
Output : 5
Explanation :
Integers with odd set bits are 1, 2,
4, 7 and 8.
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Prerequisites : Count number of set bits

The idea is based on below fact.

If n is odd then there are total n+1 integers smaller than or equal to n (0, 1, 2 … n) and half of these integers contain odd number of set bits.

How to handle case when n is even? We know result for n-1. We count set bits in n and add 1 to n/2 if the count is odd. Else we return n/2.

## C++

 `// CPP code to find numbers with ` `// odd number of set bits ` `#include ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` `  `// function that returns the number ` `// of integers with odd number of ` `// set bits ` `int` `countWithOddSetBits(``int` `n) ` `{ ` `    ``// If n is odd, then half of the ` `    ``// integers in (0, 1, .. n) contain ` `    ``// odd number of set bits. ` `    ``if` `(n % 2 != 0) ` `        ``return` `(n + 1) / 2; ` ` `  `    ``// If n is even, we know result for ` `    ``// n-1. We explicitly compute set bit ` `    ``// count in n. ` `    ``int` `count = __builtin_popcount(n); ` ` `  `    ``int` `ans = n / 2; ` `    ``if` `(count % 2 != 0) ` `        ``ans++; ` `    ``return` `ans; ` `} ` ` `  `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` `    ``int` `n = 10; ` `    ``cout << countWithOddSetBits(n); ` `    ``return` `0; ` `} `

## Python3

# Python 3 code to find numbers with
# odd number of set bits

# function that returns the number
# of integers with odd number of
# set bits
def countWithOddSetBits(n):

# If n is odd, then half of the
# integers in (0, 1, .. n) contain
# odd number of set bits.
if (n % 2 != 0):
return (n + 1) / 2

# If n is even, we know result for
# n-1. We explicitly compute set
# bit count in n.
count = bin(n).count(‘1’)

ans = n / 2
if (count % 2 != 0):
ans += 1
return ans

# Driver code
if __name__ == ‘__main__’:
n = 10
print(int(countWithOddSetBits(n)))
