MAXXOR - Find the max XOR value

no tags 

You have two integers L and R, and you are required to find the max xor value of a and b where L <= a <= R and L <= b <= R


Two integers in a line. L, R <= 1e9


One integer, the answer


1 10

so what should do to solve it not using the formula???

AC in One Go :)
(2^p - 1), where p is minimum value of i for which 2^i > L xor R

@karthik1997: try your formula for L=8 and R=10. your formula is wrong.

weak test cases my code got ac. but for input 1 1 it shows 1 but ans should be 0. :D

Nice Question .Ignore the formula.Try on your own.

don't use this formula.....its wrong for many cases...but it works here....use logic to get the beauty of ques. AC :-)

awesome problem
awesome concept
after a long time AC in one go...<3.

Yea very weak test cases that's why formula is passing. Try 100 120 i bet half of these solutions won't pass. Plus it would be nice from author to remove formula from comments.

weak test cases

@karthik1997: your formula is actually wrong. Since, the testcases are weak your solution got AC (if you strictly follow the formula)
