I’m confused with instructions regarding this exercise… what exactly are we suppose to do? what’s problem we are asked to solve? wording is terrible.


#3

I can see what’s wrong but still don’t understand what the function should do.

the smallest power of two which is greater than the current element

What does this mean? So 8 is the smallest power of 2 which is greater than the current element 5? Please explain.


#4

The wording is fine… Try identifying what you don’t understand, for example, what is a power of two, which such values exist, and which of them is the smallest one that is greater than some other value, and which value is that other value?
