Java one line solution using Math knowledge

  • 6

    Some math knowledge can solve it without using recursion or loops. Yet I don't see the value of this question.

    public boolean isPowerOfThree(int n) {
        return n == 0 ? false : n == Math.pow(3, Math.round(Math.log(n) / Math.log(3)));

    If Math.round(Math.log(n) / Math.log(3)) is close enough to integer, might we instantly infer that n is actually a power of three without computing the Math.pow() method and accumulating additional computational error?
