In this java tutorial, You will learn how to use numberOfLeadingZeros(int i) method of class Integer. This method returns the number of zero bits preceding the highest-order ("leftmost") one-bit in the two's complement binary representation of the specified int value. Returns 32 if the specified value has no one-bits in its two's complement representation, in other words if it is equal to zero.

Returns the number of zero bits preceding the highest-order ("leftmost") one-bit in the two's complement binary representation of the specified int value.

## Syntax

```public static int numberOfLeadingZeros(int i)
```

## Returns

The number of zero bits preceding the highest-order ("leftmost") one-bit in the two's complement binary representation of the specified int value, or 32 if the value is equal to zero.

## Java Integer numberOfLeadingZeros(int i) example

• Assign two integer values.
• `Integer.lowestOneBit(firstValue);`It will return the number of leading zeros in firstValue.
• `Integer.lowestOneBit(secondValue);`It will return the number of leading zeros in secondValue.
• Print the values.
```package com.technicalkeeda;

public class App {

public static void main(String[] args) {

Integer firstValue = 125;
Integer secondValue = 42;

System.out.println("Number of leading zeros in firstValue :- " + result1);
System.out.println("Number of leading zeros in secondValue :- " + result2);
}
}
```

## output

```Number of leading zeros in firstValue :- 25
Number of leading zeros in secondValue :- 26
```
