# trailing_zeros

trailing_zeros(x::Integer) -> Integer

Number of zeros trailing the binary representation of `x`

.

```
julia> trailing_zeros(2)
1
```

## Examples

```
# Count the number of trailing zeros in a binary representation
julia> trailing_zeros(2)
1
```

This function `trailing_zeros`

takes an integer `x`

as input and returns the number of trailing zeros in the binary representation of `x`

.

Example:

```
julia> trailing_zeros(2)
1
```

In this example, the binary representation of `2`

is `10`

, and it has 1 trailing zero.

Note: The `trailing_zeros`

function only works for integers. If a non-integer value is passed, it will throw an error.
