# Java program to round off an integer number to the next lower multiple of 2

Given/input a number, we have to round off the number to the next lower multiple of 2.
Submitted by Nidhi, on March 11, 2022

Problem Solution:

In this program, we will read an integer number from the user. Then we will find the next lower multiple of 2 and print the result.

Program/Source Code:

The source code to round off an integer number to the next lower multiple of 2 is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

```// Java program to round off an integer number to
// the next lower multiple of 2

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Main {
public static void main(String[] args) {
Scanner SC = new Scanner(System.in);

int tmp = 1;
int num = 0;
int i = 0;

System.out.printf("Enter Number: ");
num = SC.nextInt();

if (num > 0) {
for (; tmp <= num >> 1;)
tmp = tmp << 1;
num = tmp;
} else {
num = ~num;
num = num + 1;

for (; tmp <= num >> 1;)
tmp = tmp << 1;

tmp = tmp << 1;
tmp = ~tmp;
tmp = tmp + 1;
num = tmp;
}
System.out.printf("Result is: %d\n", num);
}
}
```

Output:

```Enter Number: 35
Result is: 32
```

Explanation:

In the above program, we imported the java.util.Scanner package to read the variable's value from the user. And, created a public class Main. It contains a static method main().

The main() method is an entry point for the program. Here, we read an integer number from the user and found the next lower multiple of 2 using bitwise shifting operators and printed the result.
