Python solution using math (probably slow)

  • 0

    The log base 4 of num is only integral when num is a power of four.

    Given any log function you can calculate log base b of n by log(n)/log(b). This is floating point math using a (probably?) slow math function. (Pulling log4 out as a separate function also has significant overhead In Python)

    Leetcode didn't give me my performance stats because there had not been enough submissions...

    from math import log
    l4 = log(4)
    def log4(n):
        return log(n)/l4
    class Solution(object):
        def isPowerOfFour(self, num):
            if num <= 0:
                return False
            return log4(num)%1 == 0
