# Challenge

Given a list of positive integers, find if there exists a permutation where taking up to one bit from each of the integers, a binary number consisting of all 1s can be created.

The number of bits in the resulting binary number is equal to the highest MSB in the list of integers.

# Output

Your code must output or return a truthy/falsey value indicating if such a permutation exists.

# Examples

Truthy:

With the list [4, 5, 2], and its binary representation [100, 101, 10], we can use the third, first, and second bits, respectively, to create 111:

4  ->  100  ->  100  ->  1
5  ->  101  ->  101  ->    1
2  ->  010  ->  010  ->   1
Result                   111


With the list [3, 3, 3], all of the numbers have both first and second bits set as 1, so we can take our pick with a number to spare:

3  ->  11  ->  11  ->  1
3  ->  11  ->  11  ->   1
3  ->  11  ->  11  ->
Result                 11


Falsey:

With the list [4, 6, 2], none of the numbers have the first bit set as 1, so the binary number cannot be created:

4  ->  100
6  ->  110
2  ->  010


With the list [1, 7, 1], only one of the numbers has the second and third bits set as 1, and the number cannot be created:

1  ->  001
7  ->  111
1  ->  001


Obviously, if the maximum number of set bits exceeds the number of integers, the result number can never be created.

# Test cases

Truthy:


[1, 2]
[3, 3]
[3, 3, 3]
[4, 5, 2]
[1, 1, 1, 1]
[15, 15, 15, 15]
[52, 114, 61, 19, 73, 54, 83, 29]
[231, 92, 39, 210, 187, 101, 78, 39]


Falsey:


[2, 2]
[4, 6, 2]
[1, 7, 1]
[15, 15, 15]
[1, 15, 3, 1]
[13, 83, 86, 29, 8, 87, 26, 21]
[154, 19, 141, 28, 27, 6, 18, 137]

### Method

Given the input array A = [a0, a1, ..., aN-1], we look for a permutation [ap, ap, ..., ap[N-1]] of A and an integer x ≤ N such that:

• s = 1 + (ap AND 20) + (ap AND 21) + ... + (ap[x-1] AND 2x-1) = 2x
• and s is greater than the greatest element m of A

### Formatted and commented

f = (                 // f = recursive function taking:
a,                  //   - a = array
m = Math.max(...a), //   - m = greatest element in a
s = 1               //   - s = current power of 2, starting at 1
) =>                  //
s > m               // success condition (see above) which is

s * 2,          //     s = next power of 2
b.splice(i, 1)  //     the current element removed from b

Max[Tr/@Permutations[n=PadLeft[#~IntegerDigits~2]]]==Tr[1^#&@@n]&


Try it online!

### Explanation

#~IntegerDigits~2


We start by converting all inputs to binary lists.

n=PadLeft[...]


Then we pad all those lists with zeros to the left to make the array rectangular. The result is stored in n for later.

Permutations[...]


Yay, brute force, let's get all possible permutations of the input.

Tr/@...


This gets the trace for each permutation, i.e. the sum of the diagonal elements in the permutation. In other words, we add up the MSB from the first number, the next-to-MSB from the second number and so on. If the permutation is valid, all of these will be 1 and there will be as many 1s as the largest input number is wide.

Max[...]


We get the maximum trace, because the trace can never be more than that of a valid permutation.

...==Tr[1^#&@@n]


The right-hand side is just a golfy version of Length @ First @ n, i.e. it gets the width of the rectangular array, and therefore the width of the largest input number. We want to make sure that the trace of some permutation is equal to this.

• Some tips when golfing in C: 1/ in many challenges (this one included), you're allowed to submit a function instead of a full program, 2/ you have to output a truthy/falsey value, this can be anything as long as it's consistent (you can output 0 / 1 instead of "false"/"true"). Lastly, this code doesn't seem to work: [1, 7, 1] should return false, and [52, 114, 61, 19, 73, 54, 83, 29] should return true – scottinet Nov 9 '17 at 12:05
