## Introduction

In this question, we need to find the first set-bit position from the right.

## Problem statement

Given an input number, find the first set-bit position of the number.

```
Input: n = 18
Output: 2
```

## Coding exercise

This problem is designed for your practice, so try to solve it yourself first. You can always refer to the solution in the next lesson if you get stuck. Good luck!

HintUse the previous logic we discussed to solve this.:

```
// java
// TODO: finish the challenge or check next lesson for solution
class Solution {
public static int getFirstSetBitPos(int n) {
// Write - Your - Code- Here
return -1; // change this and return the position of the first set-bit.
}
}
```

```
# Python
# TODO: finish the challenge or check next lesson for solution
def getFirstSetBitPos(n):
# Write - Your - Code- Here
return -1 # change this and return the position of the first set-bit.
```

```
// javascript
// TODO: finish the challenge or check next lesson for solution
const getFirstSetBitPos = n => {
// Write - Your - Code- Here
return -1; // change this and return the position of the first set-bit.
}
```

```
// javascript
// TODO: finish the challenge or check next lesson for solution
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int getFirstSetbit(int n) {
// Write - Your - Code- Here
return -1; // change this and return the position of the first set-bit.
}
```

```
// typescript
// TODO: finish the challenge or check next lesson for solution
export const getFirstSetBitPos = (n: number): number => {
// Write - Your - Code- Here
return -1; // change this and return the position of the first set-bit.
}
```

The solution will be explained in the next lesson.
