Java Integer numberOfLeadingZeros() Method

The numberOfLeadingZeros() method is a method of Integer class under java.lang package. This method returns the total number of zero bits preceding the highest-order ("leftmost") one-bit in the two's complement binary representation of the specified integer value i.e. it converts int value to Binary then considers the highest one bit and returns total number of zero bits preceding it. In other words, if the specified integer value has no one-bits or is equal to zero in its two's complement representation then it will return 32.

Note: This method is closely related to the logarithm base 2. For all positive int values x:
