# Bitwise Operators

In this challenge, you will use logical bitwise operators. All data is stored in its binary representation. The logical operators, and C language, use to represent true and to represent false. The logical operators compare bits in two numbers and return true or false, or , for each bit compared.

`Bitwise AND operator &`

The output of bitwise AND is*1*if the corresponding bits of two operands is*1*. If either bit of an operand is*0*, the result of corresponding bit is evaluated to*0*. It is denoted by &.`Bitwise OR operator |`

The output of bitwise OR is*1*if at least one corresponding bit of two operands is*1*. It is denoted by |.`Bitwise XOR (exclusive OR) operator ^`

The result of bitwise XOR operator is*1*if the corresponding bits of two operands are opposite. It is denoted by .

For example, for integers 3 and 5,

```
3 = 00000011 (In Binary)
5 = 00000101 (In Binary)
AND operation OR operation XOR operation
00000011 00000011 00000011
& 00000101 | 00000101 ^ 00000101
________ ________ ________
00000001 = 1 00000111 = 7 00000110 = 6
```

You will be given an integer , and a threshold, i1nnik$. Print the results of the and, or and exclusive or comparisons on separate lines, in that order.

**Example**

The results of the comparisons are below:

```
a b and or xor
1 2 0 3 3
1 3 1 3 2
2 3 2 3 1
```

For the `and`

comparison, the maximum is . For the `or`

comparison, none of the values is less than , so the maximum is . For the `xor`

comparison, the maximum value less than is . The function should print:

```
2
0
2
```

**Function Description**

Complete the *calculate_the_maximum* function in the editor below.

*calculate_the_maximum* has the following parameters:

*int n:*the highest number to consider*int k:*the result of a comparison must be lower than this number to be considered

**Prints**

Print the maximum values for the `and`

, `or`

and `xor`

comparisons, each on a separate line.

**Input Format**

The only line contains space-separated integers, and .

**Constraints**

**Sample Input 0**

```
5 4
```

**Sample Output 0**

```
2
3
3
```

**Explanation 0**

All possible values of and are:

The maximum possible value of that is also is , so we print on first line.

The maximum possible value of that is also is , so we print on second line.

The maximum possible value of that is also is , so we print on third line.
