Half N by M
Basic Accuracy: 61.01% Submissions: 878 Points: 1

Given two values N and M. Give the value when N is halved M-1 times.

Example 1:

Input: N = 100, M = 4
Output: 12
Explaination: The sequence of numbers is 
100, 50, 25, 12.

Example 2:

Input: N = 10, M = 5
Output: 0
Explaination: The sequence is 10, 5, 2, 1 and 0.

Your Task:
You do not need to read input or print anything. Your task is to complete the function mthHalf() which takes N and M as input  parameters and retunrs the value of N when it is halved M-1 times.

Expected Time Complexity: O(log(max(N, M)))
Expected Auxiliary Space: O(1)

1 ≤ N ≤ 109
1 ≤ M ≤ 1000
