## Printing the trailing zeros in the binary number in Golang

Problem Solution:

Here, we will get the total number of trailing zeros in a binary number using the bits.TrailingZeros() function and print the result on the console screen.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to print the trailing zeros in a binary number is given below. The given program is compiled and executed on the ubuntu 18.04 operating system successfully.

## Golang code to print the trailing zeros in the binary number

```// Golang program to print the
// trailing zeros in the binary number

package main

import (
"fmt"
"math/bits"
)

func main() {
var num uint = 0

fmt.Printf("Enter number: ")
fmt.Scanf("%d", &num)

fmt.Printf("Binary number: %064b\n", num)
fmt.Printf("Number of trailing zeros are: %d\n", bits.TrailingZeros(num))
}
```

Output:

```Enter number: 108
Binary number: 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001101100
Number of trailing zeros are: 2
```

Explanation:

In the above program, we declare the package main. The main package is used to tell the Go language compiler that the package must be compiled and produced the executable file. Here, we imported the required packages to predefined functions.

In the main() function, we created an integer variable then read the value of the variable from the user, and then we got the total number of trailing zeros in a binary number using the bits.TrailingZeros() function. After that, we printed the result on the console screen.
