C++ Solution without loop/recursion

    Simple idea coming from similar quesions: Power of Two/Three
    Add one additional restriction so that num is power of 4 rather than power of 2:

    (int)(log(num)/log(2))%2 == 0


    class Solution {
        bool isPowerOfFour(int num) {
            if (num <= 0)
                return false;
            int t = pow(4, (int)(log(INT_MAX)/log(4)));
            return (t%num == 0 && (int)(log(num)/log(2))%2 == 0);

    could you explain "(int)(log(num)/log(2))%2 == 0"?

    Hi, just as I said "power of 4 rather than power of 2".

    For numbers that are power of 4, the division result would be even, but for those that are only power of 2, this would be odd.

    Find some numbers and try for yourself :-D
