# Python XOR int

Use `^` operator in Python to get XOR int. As XOR is a bitwise operator, it will compare bits of both integers bit by bit after converting them into binary numbers.

The truth table for XOR (binary)

## Python XOR int

Simple example code.

``````# Initializing two integers a and b
a = 10
b = 30

# Finding XOR of a and b using ^ operator
c = a ^ b

# Printing the XOR value
print(a, "XOR", b, "=", c)``````

Output:

XOR(a,b) for integers

``````def XOR(a,b):
return a ^ b

nbr1 = 67
nbr2 = 73
print (XOR(nbr1, nbr2))``````
``````a = 5
b = 3

result = a ^ b
print(result)  # Output: 6
``````

In this example, the binary representation of `5` is `101`, and the binary representation of `3` is `011`. Performing a bitwise XOR operation on these binary numbers yields `110`, which is `6` in decimal.

You can use the `^` operator to perform XOR operations on integers in Python.
